Computer science counts towards the English Baccalaureate

I mentioned a while back that the Vint Cerf had expressed support for CS becoming part of the English Baccalaureate degree.  It’s been announced that CS does now count, but as a science.  Pretty much the same decision we made here in Georgia.

The decision by Education Secretary Michael Gove will mean that computing will count as a science in the English Baccalaureate for secondary school league tables from January 2014 – alongside physics, chemistry, biology and pupils taking double science.

The Department for Education says the change is intended to reflect the “importance of computer science to both education and the economy”.
