AU teachers fight for Macs

The president of the Australian Mac Users Group has begun a public campaign to publicize an effort by The New South Wales Department of Education and Training (DET) to leave Australian teachers who rely on Apple systems in limbo. The DET has "declared war on Macs," according to the president of the Australian Mac Users Group, after the DET and Apple were unable to come to an agreement to renew the "Laptops For Teachers" program which began a number of years ago. That program offered teachers a choice to select their preferred computing platform, including Mac systems, which totaled just over 8,000 according to the last ICT census. "The fact is both Apple and the DET are responsible but it is the teachers and students who will suffer."
