You’ve never been one to mince words. Sometimes you say things that I have been thinking (or at least wondering about) but perhaps dared not utter. There is indeed a great irony here and a shocking lack of knowledge or appreciation of our shared history and tradition that should be the foundation for these recent efforts. I do hope we can find a way to allow every child to have access to learning programming — as a way of thinking and being empowered in the world of their future — but it has to be the real deal, with depth as you say, not just an hour of doing a puzzle or a closed curriculum exercise. I am a perpetual optimist and want to believe that there will be some good to come of all this confusing noise and excitement.
All the best,
