@infovore That’s exactly my feeling. I think CompSci should be /available/, and included in pre-GCSE curriculum (like drama, art, whatever).

@infovore And then simply optional at GCSE.

@infovore I'm concerned over implementation too - Kit, updates, Procurement, Corporates - Visual Basic. and teaching - Great idea but ...

@infovore I'm deeply concerned that programming will now be the hurdle you have to get over in order to get access to a computer in school.

@infovore Teach kids to program in Latin!

@infovore I have reservations too, but almost *every* subject is “forced on” kids at school - few would choose most subjects they study.

@tobybarnes @infovore from stuff I've seen on TV today it's still not going to be about MAKING new things or getting kids interested in same

@tobybarnes @infovore (learning how to use visual app-builder doesn't generate the next wave of coders that could WRITE those app-builders)

@infovore Yeah but there isn't a dire immediate need for Latin in a large proportion of research, business and society as a whole.

@infovore If corporations and governments was reappropriating Latin to document and control every aspect of our lives we'd take it seriously

@infovore 'forcing' active languages needed for engaging in society like english, maths and programming on children is not wrong

@infovore is forcing maths on kids, many of whom will hate it, wrong? CompSci seems closer in utility to maths than latin to me.

@infovore true - but a lot of us hated games and now think computers are good - this will create a properly post digital generation

@maxgadney @infovore I came to gaming quite late on. For me, computers were about making/reading about music.
