School reports via mobile phones and email?

This BBCNews Report suggests that parents in England may soon be getting more frequent progress reports from their children's schools via e-mail or even mobile phones:

'Ministers want to use new technologies to improve the flow of information between schools and parents.

They say research shows parental involvement is vital to children's progress, and want to go beyond traditional parent-teacher evenings.

They might also set up chatrooms to discuss the way local schools are run. Education Minister Jim Knight has been investigating the issue. He is expected to make an announcement early in 2007.'

I wonder, can parents email or text back their comments??
