It is not that text book/curriculum doesnt talk abt other freedoms.
But effective communication is not happening at school level on
ideological aspects of free software.
There is scope for improvement. It would be good some one
can design interesting activities for children which effectively
communicate the different freedoms to children. Any way
it is not an easy task to ensure that majority of 60,000 teachers
effectively use it.

School curricula on and using FS
I think there would be problem if you chose to adopt or recommend the
*mode of educating* Free Software in Kerala. Nothing that I know here
uses the opportunity to equip student community to get introduced to
Free Software through its different Freedoms other than *Freedom Level
This is a fine trap that Kerala's IT@School project is led into, as of
now, because all these learning exercises can be replaced by Freewares
or Sharewares or other subsidised Proprietary software.
If these concerns are unfounded, can they be substantiated with
evidence ? Guess Arun or Vimal may be able to clarify.
