A package was submitted to savannah.nongnu.org
This mail was sent to address@hidden, address@hidden
Peter Hutnick <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
Package: Free Curriculum Project
System name: fcp
The Free Curriculum Project is an effort to create a complete curriculum and
set of course materials that are \"Free\" in the GNU sense. Home school
students are the obvious target audience, but there isn\'t any reason that
public or private schools couldn\'t or shouldn\'t use any or all of this
We\'d all like to be everything to everyone. We can\'t. I\'d love to see this
project grow to be objectively and universally \"the best\" curriculum for
every level of education in every language and every culture in the world. In
the mean time, I propose the following modest constraints.
The initial curriculum will be for English speaking American students. It is
intended to be a course from birth to \"High School Graduation.\"
The project goal is to create a written plan for educating a child from
\"Kindergarten to 12th grade\" and to create a complete set of course materials
under the GNU Free Documentation License to implement this curriculum including
textbooks, workbooks, \"homework\" and tests.
It does not exist yet but I\'m working on it. The current \"home page\" is
http://hutnick.com/fcp/. I am working on a Comp Sci text, which is coming
along nicely. I hope to cull large portions of the material from public domain
All original materials will be distributed under the terms of the GNU FDL. All
substantial edits to public domain works will be under the FDL.
Other Software Required:
I am using LaTeX generated by LyX for \"source\" with HTML, PDF and PS output.
Ideally the materials will be of high enough quality that a
publisher(/publishers) will print hard copy kits.
Clearly this is out of the norm for Savannah projects, but I could really use
the Savannah resources, and I belive that it is a worthy project.
If the project is rejected please advise wether or not I should re-submit when
I have some course materials available.
