Russian Teacher Fired For Complaining About Having To Use Microsoft Software
from the it's-that-damn-paperclip dept
In response to this high profile case, many Russian schools started to switch to Linux, and in response to that, Russia apparently declared that all schools should switch to Linux-based software by 2008.
However, apparently that didn't actually happen. Glyn Moody points us to the news that another Russian school teacher has been fired for complaining that his school still used Microsoft software. Even though the 2007 order required schools to switch to Linux, apparently a training system the government is making the school use requires Microsoft Office. So the teacher filed a complaint, pointing out the contradiction in orders... and for his efforts he was fired.
This seems like a fairly ridiculous response to someone simply pointing out a contradiction in the rules, doesn't it?
