Free childcare with programming lessons thrown in

Tired parents, who spend their lives obeying the orders of small people, are being lambasted by researchers for not realising that kids at school will now learn to code.

In fact research of 1,000 five to 11-year-olds and their parents, carried out by Ocado Technology has revealed that 65% of parents are unaware that their primary school children will be learning to code at school.

Why is this surprising? By the time a child starts school parents can’t look beyond free babysitting from a school. Clearly the 35% that do know of this are the lucky ones with kind grandparents providing free childcare.

In similar research when asked what they did at school today 98% of kids said “nuffin.'”
