Schools have tight budgets, and with recent cuts to education funding, those budgets have gotten even tighter. So how can schools afford to pay $120+ per computer for the latest Microsoft office products.
The answer is: they can’t. Microsoft understands that schools have tight budgets. They also understand the need to teach children to be proficient in the most up to date versions of their products.
Because of this, Microsoft has the EES program. It allows schools to purchase software based on the number of faculty they have, NOT the number of students or computers.
