There was a school district in Michigan - SE Michigan maybe - that went that
route some years ago. I really don't remember any more than that, so you
may as well be the one to petition the Great Ghod Ghoogle as I.
Hmmm, wait - it *may* have been written up in Linux Journal. Okay, that
maybe I can check more easily.

Feb 97 - NF/Observatory Networking - they use Linux and have some radio
links between the experimenter's "town site" and a remote telescope.
Ah, here it is! Sep 97, "Linux at Holt Public Schools" - WAN (radio) links
and Linux proxy servers form the basis of a computer network for this
Michigan public school system.
This is all a bit dated now. The Holt tech plan is linked from their web
page (holt.k12.mi.us), and there's a link to a copy of the LJ article int he
"attachments" section at the end.
Boy, those top shelves are dusty!
He that questioneth much shall learn much, and content much; but
especially if he apply his questions to the skill of the persons whom
he asketh; for he shall give them the occasion to please themselves
in speaking, and himself shall continually gather knowledge. But let
his questions not be troublesome, for that is fit for a poser; and
let him be sure to leave other men their turns to speak. - Francis Bacon
