How can we fix this issue?

I think its important not to swing completely the other way.The pressure is on the schools to save money and they are cutting back on the practical skills like woodwork and metalwork. This is something beyond their control.

Don't shoot the messenger.

Also

Computing is strong in schools, but its not like the 1980’s.

Programming and being good with computers became un-cool.Slide16
