nk497 writes "Last year, Eric Schmidt slammed British computer science teaching, saying the UK was wasting its computing heritage — since then, the Government has agreed to re-examine how the subject is taught. "Rebooting computer science education is not straightforward," Schmidt said. "Scrapping the existing curriculum was a good first step — the equivalent of pulling the plug out of the wall. The question is now how to power up." To help, Schmidt has now promised funding from Google to train 100 teachers as well as give classrooms Raspberry Pis, via charity Teach First."
