it is required to train the teachers in IT and show them the possibilities of #foss #software . yes lobbying as commercials :-). only if they understand and build up knowledge the will take the foss path.
currently most teachers have no idea of IT and follow commercial lobbying like lemmings. kids will start in the wrong world.

This so much.
@kmj I've encountered the same in my conversations with teachers.
My key takeaway is that, to increase adoption among educators, #FOSS must be:
1. Easy to acquire and use for a novice
2. Provide a similar UX to non-free alternatives
3. Easy to troubleshoot
These are all hurdles that the #FOSS community has been making huge strides in over the years, but we need more eyes on the problem!
