With the increasing reliance on technology and computer-based daily activities, primary schools should incorporate some sort of programming into the standard curriculum.
I understand that not everyone is supposed to be a programmer, but the logic and reasoning skills developed from learning basic programming skills helps to supplement other areas of learning.
Programming the most basic software helps developing minds learn to problem solve and work out solutions to basic tasks.
Even if the programming is more centered around seeing the effects of basic functions like using Scratch (https://scratch.mit.
edu/), this sort of practice will greatly benefit future generations in whichever career path they go down.
