Computer science is making its way into the education system in Great Britain. The Royal Society labeled current offerings as “highly unsatisfactory.” According to these professionals, the education system is suffering from a shortage of teachers able to teach beyond basic digital literacy. They also pointed fingers at the lack of demand from high level educational institutions.

We found this interesting information on ITPRO in their article, “Royal Society calls for computer science discipline in schools.” The Royal Society is a Fellowship of the world’s most eminent scientists and is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence.

Many IT professionals applaud this evaluation and subsequent recommendations, believing it will bring a real-world feel to the curriculum.
