Is your kids' school forcing Zoom on them too?

Thank you for advocating with the school. I've been hearing that
BigBlueButton with Canvas is a good alternative to Zoom for schools. It
sounds like it might be most practical for them to switch next school
year, before they renew their Zoom license. In the meantime, you could
run a BigBlueButton demo for them, or any other free replacement for
other proprietary software they are using and try to get them to
evaluate and prepare to switch.

FSF has been working on this issue too
