“New software agreements for schools are riling some teachers who are required to remove Microsoft Office from all Apple Macintoshes used in the classroom,” Stephen Bell Wellington reports for Computerworld New Zealand.

“The schools are no longer licensed to use Microsoft’s popular Office suite under the new contracts negotiated between vendors and the Ministry of Education,” Wellington reports.

“The change is simply a matter of value for money and appropriateness, says ministry ICT spokesman Douglas Harre. Macs in classrooms have now been equipped with the Apple products iWork and Kidpix in place of Office,” Wellington reports.
