Submission + - English physics teachers asks for his subject back (wellingtongrey.net)

An anonymous reader writes: An open letter to the English government regarding the ways in which they've broken physics education in secondary schools. The gist is that students are being taught a qualitative, subjective subject instead of physics in its quantitative glory. From the letter:

I am a young and once-enthusiastic physics teacher. I despair at what I am forced to teach. I have potentially thirty years of lessons to give, but I didn't sign up for this — and the business world still calls. There I won't have to endure the pain of trying to animate a crippled subject. The rigorous of physics been torn down and replaced with impotent science media studies.

Real Programmers think better when playing Adventure or Rogue.
