Interestingly, after my post yesterday noting that I was still awaiting a response to my OIA to the Ministry of Education, I received this via FYI.org.nz (many thanks!) - https://fyi.org.nz/request/12489/response/48723/attach/html/5/1224464%20Lane%20OIA.PDF.pdf.html Need to re-read it, but my initial impression: the Ministry thinks it's ok to do bulk-buying of proprietary software and use "public" (it's not public - control of it is entirely private) Cloud services. It delegates responsibility for school SW choices of school boards... few of whom are qualified.
The lack of informed leadership by the Ministry on these sorts of issues is remarkable to me. Seems to be a lot of responsibility shirking going on to me.
@lightweight Good to know that circus has not improved since I escaped.
@lightweight "public cloud" is the smartest branding since "cloud".
@rune yes - it's remarkably disingenuous.
