    LEA AREAs Within EDUGEEK

    Talking to one of our counterparts at our LEA the suggestion came up about having LEA specific areas within edugeek where problems unique to the LEA such as Internet provision etc could be posted but be accessible to other LEAs and users to exchange ideas and solutions.

    As for the additional administration and moderation this could be done either by the relevant LEA or volunteers from withing the LEA catchments area.

    I know most LEAs have there own forums, but some are a little dated and not too user friendly, but this would help everyone involved in IT for education.

    Possibly a reasonable fee to cover costs?

    Potentially a lot of holes in this suggestion - but it's a start

    I've not seen too many LEA specific threads to make it seem worthwhile

    Nor me to be honest - but you don't see many LEA reps on here either - which is a shame as we all work toward the same goal.

    As for being recognised when slating an LEA - freedom of speech is not a crime if worded carefully

    And a suitable disclaimer in your signature

    Most up-to-date LEAs have tin foil hat penetration capabilities

    Yeah... but if you double-up the foil shiny-side-out you should be able to protect yourself
