Government proposals to ensure every family with five- to 19-year-old learners has access to IT have been published.

Ministers want to make sure all families in England have access to technology such as the internet so children and young people can study and access educational resources at home.

The initiative is known as Home Access, and schools minister Jim Knight has set up a Home Access taskforce including representatives from the IT industry, education, and the third sector.
