Schools To Get Microsoft Vouchers From Settlement

Nashville (AP) -- Tennessee school systems will get vouchers for Microsoft software, amounting to about $16.40 for each student, from a settlement of an unlawful trade practices lawsuit against the technology company.

The Tennessee Department of Education will distribute a total of $15.3 million in software vouchers to school systems.

The class action lawsuit contended that Microsoft used unlawful trade practices to maintain a monopoly and overcharge Tennessee consumers.

Each school district will receive about $16.40 cents per student according to the district's average daily membership at the end of the 2005-06 school year.

School administrators will also be allowed to use software vouchers for current or future Microsoft operating system software.

The system allocations range from Carroll County's $155 to almost two million dollars for Memphis schools.
