@laura @aral This battle is very different at universities than at k-12 schools. At k-12 schools, the admins & low-tech teachers /push/ #Google onto students in the most imposing way. The problem is wholly with the staff. In universities it's the complete opposite. It's mostly the students who push for #MACFANG & the staff simply accommodates.
@aral @laura The k-12 fight is the most difficult. If a parent in the US claims that the school forcing #Google usage is a violation of the students #FERPA privacy rights, the school and the dept. of education simply ignores them. Even if they could be convincing, the cost of training teachers to do it right competes for a scarce resource: money.
