The education sector is facing a crisis of open source education.
A new report by the Institute for Government, the National Union of Students and the University of Manchester found that students from the poorest fifth of families have been excluded from education since 2010.
The report also reveals that access to the public and free internet is an impediment to learning for some.
The government must address the problem, which is being highlighted by a new report from the Institute of Government, entitled The Education System Is Not Being Open.
It also revealed that in some parts of the UK, the state is actively blocking access to free internet for some students.
There is no single answer to this crisis, says Paul Martin, the executive director of the Institute, but it is clear that the future of education is inextricably linked to our future economic success.
‘The education system is being open source’ is a new concept in our age.
Open source education is a fundamental element of our modern digital economy.
It is used by businesses to develop software and services, but has also become the basis of our education system.
We rely on open source software to run the computer systems in our classrooms, to manage our work, and to manage and protect our data.
Open Source is the cornerstone of our society, says Martin.
The future of the education system The Institute’s report shows that many students have been left behind, and the state has a key role to play in ensuring that all students are able to access the most up-to-date technology and software.
However, while it is vital that students have access to open source, the government needs to take a more active role in encouraging and supporting the open source development of education.
‘If we are to build the future we want for our children and grandchildren, we need to have a vibrant and successful education system,’ Martin says.
The Government must: support the open sourcing of the British education system
