Point taken. I absolutely agreed with you on the potential risks of doing spec work without going into depth.
One thing I would like to add about working with schools; in the case of public schools most of the time you’ll have to set yourself or firm up as a contractor and submit a bid. Contracting with City, County or State Government involves detailed paperwork and processes far beyond what content producers just starting out or working as freelance are prepared for. Funny thing is, the production side of such contracts is the easy part. Staying within contract compliance and negotiating with government entities is where all the work will be. However, contracting with schools is worth doing. But just like with doing spec work, you have to know what your getting yourself into and have realistic expectations on what you’ll get out of doing it.
