Will The Disinformation Ever Stop?
This weeks Computing - "The Lure of the Public Sector: the advantages for the IT professional of working in education".
Quote: "BSF programme is providing many opportunities for innovation in the education sector."
Since an IT professional in a school will be killed off by BSF, as will innovation... oxymoron me thinks... lack of journalistic investigation anyone...

Perhaps all the Edugeek members affected by BSF should reply to the article, they have after all helpfully supplied a link for feedback

I've submitted a nice little comment, shame it has to be "moderated"...

Unfortunately after seeing the laughable presentations given to us by BSF members on friday I'm now under the opinion of:

We could all leave feedback on that site, it won't change BSF ideas, it won't change a thing. We'll just all be seen as being negative (as most teachers here see me and my boss for pointing out failing BSF ideas in IT)

A case for Abigail's Oath... which I shall be following when the c**p hits the fan over BSF...
I am hired because I know what I am doing, not because I will do whatever I am told is a good idea. This might cost me bonuses, raises, promotions, and may even label me as "undesirable" by places I don't want to work at anyway, but I don't care. I will not compromise my own principles and judgement without putting up a fight. Of course, I won't always win, and I will sometimes be forced to do things I don't agree with, but if I am my objections will be known, and if I am shown to be right and problems later develop, I will shout "I told you so!" repeatedly, laugh hysterically, and do a small dance or jig as appropriate to my heritage.

I've posted a comment too but I don't think they'll post it as I called the journalist who wrote the article a muppet....

I just contacted Computing .net and they have a Magazine as well as a "online" section...
Spoke to the Editor of Computing and he knows nothing about the BSF or what destructive impact it wil have on ICT In-House community, inovation, job losses and general stagnation of ICTand massive costs that the BSF ICT would bring..
Or that Outsourcing is being FORCED onto schools
He's intrested in doing an article.. so if anyone wants to write to him on how BSF is not a good thing for Schools with good ICT Staff and infrastructure in place
or that all the secondary schools in the UK will belong to the big 4 and ICT technicians will just be drones..
email him on email@example.com
