I fully agree. Those doing the wrong thing here aren't Microsoft,
it's the Ministry of Education (and other education authorities). 

Our message is a positive one, namely that Open Standards provide
accessibility for everyone. 

Whether Silverlight is good software or not (for whatever "good"
means) isn't actually the question here.
