Compulsory coding in schools: The new Nerd Tourism
The writer Toby Young tells a story about how the modern 100m race is run in primary schools. At the starting pistol, everyone runs like mad. At the 50m point, the fastest children stop and wait for the heavier kids to catch up. Then all the youngsters walk across the finishing line together, holding hands. I have no idea if this is true, but the media class’s newly acquired enthusiasm for teaching all children computer programming is very similar.
