Abstract

Considers the future of education in light of developments in information technology – most notably the growth of the internet – over recent years. Suggests that information technology, which has been welcomed into schools, is a “Trojan horse” which will ultimately lead to the extinction of the education system as we know it. Schools will be unable to compete with the wealth of knowledge freely available to students via sources such as the internet.
