We did a signature campaign for this, and with that met IT Secretary who is the ultimate authority related to Information Technology works at government and insisted to use GNU/Linux operating systems for Free Laptops, which he agreed for.
We as FSFTN have not been invited to be part of curriculum formation board as Civil Society. But there were efforts taken by like minded people, and that resulted in Open Source Lab, with few technologies, but that too has changed recently towards mobile application development.
There are numerous reasons why Open Source Lab failed to take off, like course was not designed to make students understand but just to have technological terms inside course just to escape pressure from people's pressure, etc. but I have not heard any review about the reasons on why there were no traction among staffs and students. When the effort is to just namesake we cant expect much out of it.
To get into that level of discussion with Curriculum board we need to boost our campaigns and engage in more public discussions about current education system issues and improvements which can be done with Free Software & Free Culture.
We are in that state, but giving bribe is not the solution, but increasing awareness among general public on what Free Software & Free Culture can transform education system will do.
