As far as i can understand it is a clean slate(teachers). They dont know
much abt Basic or Python. Teacher training is a must.
QBasic is what being used for 8th and suggested to continue !!!
I feel Basic is complex compared to Python.
1. Arrays .
is it possible to have char and int in one array in basic ?
2. evil GOTO
What is Basic with out GOTO ;)
3. function ?
Can we have functions in Basic ??
GOSUB - RETURN with line numbers is ugly.
What is better than Python-Turtle with IDLE
Is there a interactive Basic ?
