Michael Gove – 2014 Comments on Computing Curriculum

The comments made by Michael Gove, the then Secretary of State for Education, on 4 February 2014.

The new computing curriculum will give our children the skills they need to succeed in the 21st century. That is why we replaced the obsolete and boring curriculum with one that is forward-thinking, modern, and drawn up by teachers, industry experts and leading technology firms.

I want IT firms, university computing departments and software developers to use this fund to share their knowledge with the next generation.
