So the Gove press release on ICT is released by the Dept for Education. ICT is condemned as boring and harmful. The programme of study is to be scrapped (it sounds like we need Arnold Schwarzenegger to blitz it away).
This is why we are withdrawing [ICT] from September . Technology in schools will no longer be micro-managed by Whitehall. By withdrawing the Programme of Study, we’re giving teachers freedom over what and how to teach, revolutionising ICT as we know it.
But then the press release says:
ICT will remain a compulsory part of the National Curriculum, pending the National Curriculum review.
How can the PoS be scrapped and it remain in the NC. The NC is the PoS...
