Ideas for the Schools mapping project
We made some amazing progress in January and a number of great tools have been developed. How else can we support the quarterly project to map schools?

How do people feel about running a press release related to the schools project. Good idea?

Generally seems like a good idea but I have no idea who would be on the distribution list. Tech Journals/websites: Not very exciting for them; Local Authority/Education media: more likely, but unsure what they read.

But if it's to be picked up, I think we'll need some sort of angle to make it newsworthy. This might be achievement based, or perhaps something that explains the benefits to society, or both.

Why not? But the project description/docs are not really currently in good enough shape for a big bang promotion. It needs a clear description and call to action. Current wiki page is a jumble tags and links, and lots of assumed OSM knowledge.
