Case Studies in India

An article by Indian scientist Dr. V. Sasi Kumar which explains in detail how the education system is structured in India, with significant notes on its development throughout history. The article also covers the case of Kerala, the state in India which successfully implemented Free Software in thousands of schools thanks to the government's project IT@School.

Some notions on the education system of India can also be found in Wikipedia.

Below are listed some of the educational institutions in India who are using Free Software.
