Michael Gove: Sacked for introducing new ICT teaching Syllabus.

In January 2012 Education secretary Michael Gove set out a plan to update the teaching of  Information Communication Technology. (ICT) . Instead of bored children being taught how to use Word and Excel by equally bored teachers there would be 11 year olds capable of writing programmes for simple 2-D animations using a MIT tool called Scatch and by 16 would have an understanding of formal logic previously only covered by University courses and capable of writing smartphone Apps.

The Government (that is Mr Gove) threw out the old syllabus, built around an ability to use Microsoft Office, and introduced a new syllabus which taught computer studies. This new syllabus in many schools relied on the Linux system, an altogether cheaper, easier to use and more secure system.


So after suggesting a radical new approach to computer studies, independant of microsoft, Michael Grove is shuffled out of office. To leave the syllabus of Computer Studies open for grabs again. Of course, we could be wrong, and the position of Chief Whip is an important one. But the sacking of someone so apparently close to the Prime Minister as Mr Gove causes any inquisitive person to think.

Far more useful would be teaching skills such as carpentry, husbandry, foraging, hunting, growing plants, physical strength and that's just what boys should be taught (seperate from the girls)

I do not even see much need in literacy amongst most folk. We would be far better as a land of rural peasants working their own land, than a bunch of duped self important consumers living a life of technology, fast food and banal amusements.
We do not need these convoluted technologies, not at least if we live lives of meaning, amongst our own folk in happier times.
Force out the bankers, slay the traitors and break the power of "the ring" I say.

@ Too right Alf, but that's exactly what the promoters of 'wimmin's' rights and homosexuality DON'T want. Feminised/demasculated countries are infinitely easier to manipulate.

Up to 1,000 new homes could be built on site of former Woodford Aerodrome said...

On a site where Britain lead the world of aviation technology we now see yet more homes are to be built for white flighters desperate to escape the immigrant tsunami. The Britain gifted to us by our forefathers has been systematically squandered by the most useless generation this nation has ever produced.

If we suffer just a little, then we are his children.
