Hopefully ICT teachers will be able to find other jobs.

Its crazy that in a technology dependent world the Tories and Lib Dems are scrapping ICT lessons. They should have reformed the subject, get kids up to speed with programs that will be useful in business and every day life.

EDIT: upon closer inspection, Ive just spouted a load of reactionary nonsense. I shall leave this here as a monument to my shame.
