What Policy Should India Adopt for ICT in School Education?

,----[ Quote ]
| Considering that computer science is a strange mix of deep theory as well as
| sophisticated technology, it is very vital for any society to use this
| transparently. Else, we will let some agencies become monopolies. This is a
| serious danger to digital society because, the data that is digitized belongs
| to you and me, and not to the company. But, in reality today, our data has
| been handed over to the proprietary companies, since they alone have the
| license to decode our own documents. This will create a possibility for
| computer crime, which is happening all around our eyes. We should we let this
| happen?
