ChromeOS is actually a really good fit for education. The self-repairing BIOS makes it practically invulnerable to malware, and the cloud-centric approach means that any kid can sign on to any Chromebook and have access to their stuff. There's no need for an IT staff to fix or recover anything, and upgrades are automagic.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Chromebooks should do well in schools, as they are easy to use and easy to manage. And they boot up fast, so students don't have to wait for halfway through class for their laptop to be ready.
One issue is that many web-based education applications need Java, which Chromebooks do not support. And some schools may still be running Windows application. A way around these issues is with a solution like Ericom AccessNow, an HTML5 RDP solution that enables Chromebook users to connect to any RDP host, including Terminal Server and VDI virtual desktops, and run Windows applications or desktops in a browser tab. That means that you can open up an Internet Explorer session inside a Chrome browser tab, and then connect to the applications that require Java and run them on the Chromebook.
