I'm writing to you as, one of the responsables for
networking in schools in Germany.  I got your address and the address of
your mailing list from Ruediger Volk.  I joined the mailinglist today
--- I hope it works.

We are a group of teachers in Germany which is promoting the use of
networks in schools and in teacher-training.  With the support of the
German Unix User Group (GUUG) we created the Domain `' as an
organizational hook-up for schools in our country.  At the moment, we
have 90+ schools connected to the UseNet/Internet and we have developed
some basic material about networking in schools.  We drive a
Newsgroup-Hierarchy in German: SCHULE.* and are participating in an
European News-Hierarchy: SCHOOL.*, mainly in English.

The current situation in Germany:

Many schools are actively participating in "Aquadata", an ecological net
on water-quality in lakes and rivers.  Others participate from time to
time in international dicussions such as "racism and hostility against
strangers".  Some schools (such as mine) have established email-projects
with different other schools mainly in Europe.

We have a lack of

     - concepts to bring interested partners together
       (some sort of moderators or "animateurs")
     - meaningful FAQs with educational-related questions
     - universities which support the connection of schools

As a consequence of the last point many schools (such as mine) do not
get the K-12-Hierarchy because they have to transfer data over
long-distance phone-calls.

In some federal states the educational administration is playing with
proprietary network-protocols which at the current time hinder(?) the
internetworking of schools.

I'm strongly interested in participating in your work and I would like
you to inform me of your activities.  As far as I see, I will not be
able to participate in the meeting in July in Amsterdam but I will check
it out in the following days.  Do you have an agenda?  If you send an
official invitation to me, that would faciliate my position.  Please

I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
