or nearly that, anyway.....

Royal Society opens inquiry into why kids hate tech
Lessons that is, not games, mobiles, Facebook:


'exam results have shown computing subjects are failing to grab kids' 

Could it be that a strong bias towards proprietary products is not 
inspiring students?
Would more appreciation of Free Software in education enable better 
use of talents?

Express your views to the Royal Society soon.
