About this book

Introduction

This book critically examines the substance of claims that the educational system has an anti-business bias and that computer literacy is the panacea for Britain's economic problems. The authors explore the relationship that has developed between education, industry and technology, point to the political obsessions and illusions that lie behind this new orthodoxy and discuss the possible alternatives.
