We have created a forum over at SUGUK (SharePoint User Group UK) for sharepoint in Education. Its for schools and colleges who want help, discuss ideas, share what they have done - or just generally discuss their SharePoint environments.
Get involved, their are a few Sharepoint/Class Server MVPs involved.
Our vision for the area to build and share resources, web parts, site templates and documents that will help you implement your MLG into your school/college.
Andrew Woodward MVP (leading on the forum)
Have you done your own site layout, used the MLG one, share your what you have done
