Absolutely right. If you want women in IT, it's essential to start teaching them when they're still little girls. Same goes for almost any field, any occupation, any skillset, both girls and boys. 

If real education has been usurped by special interests, business must pick up the slack. Just hope they remember that single-skill people are really, really boring and rarely an asset. .
