The Open Source School

We recently published an article on how schools can migrate almost entirely to the cloud, many of our readers pointed out that several of the applications we showcased were available for free, through open source licensing, which got as thinking…. lets write on article on a hypothetical school which is entirely open source! After hours of brainstorming this is what we came up with, Is it possible? Absolutely. Is it practical? You decide.
