In the Begining

This story started , for me 26 years ago. Working with great young people in North Peterborough.
( although others will say that it really started 51 years ago when I failed to pass my 11 plus examination because my writing was not good enough!)

Working at The Walton School in the 1970s, one particular intelligent young man started this story when he came back to his Biology lesson from a maths lesson.
'I cannot do it any more!' he said. ' They have put a white board in the maths room and he is using a blue felt tip pen! Icannot read  what he  writeson the board!'
He was very depressed. He knew that he needed to pass his examinations to achieve his dream of university. The first in his family.

We stopped the lesson and spent the next hour investigating what he meant, how serious it was and then what we should do.
Well This blog is going to be about what that young man started and and the results of his frustration. I think it is going to be an exciting twelve months.
It has taken a long time to get to this stage,and it wasn't really until Windows 98 came into use  that real progress could be made.
Please join in , let's  find out what is really possible.
