Kentucky Set Computer Skills Equal to Foreign Languages

Kentucky Set Computer Skills Equal to Foreign Languages

The Kentucky Senate has recently delivered an interesting decision: all students in the state are now allowed to replace foreign language requirements in public schools with computer programming courses. The idea is to help prepare teenagers for high-paying jobs in the computer industry. Today Kentucky students must earn 22 credits to graduate high school, but 15 of them are requirements for maths, science, social studies and English, while college prerequisites call on kids to have 2 credits of foreign language.

The creators of the new bill want colleges to count computer languages a “foreign language”. They point at national statistics indicating that no more than 2.4% of college students graduate with a degree in computer science, while there is a high demand of it in the world. Students who are good in programming can consider jobs that start with $60,000 salaries.

Of course, there’s opposition to this suggestion, because it can re-enforce the isolationist nature of education. Apparently, some believe that if Kentuckians teenagers can’t speak French or German they can forget where these countries are and speak Java instead.

fusseltier avatarthis coming from the country that has degrees in waste management, etc.
just because its called a computer language doesn't mean its a language.
a language skill is a real language that people speak, you can not hold a conversation with a computer language... its something used to control a processor to complete a function, (really its just manipulating binary easier than it normally would be if you had to use binary to write a program) so in reality, a computer language is really only a way to write in a number system.

Crash1 avatarAs an addendum to fusseltier's comment ... KLINGON is NOT a recognised language, neither is ELVEN (from the LOTR novels & movies)! A Foreign Language is classed as any one of the OFFICIAL languages of any foreign nation. (Generally, they are USUALLY one of the following - English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Mandarin, and Hindi. these cover 90%+ of the earth's population!)

No avatarAmerican students are notorious for spending as little effort and time on their language classes, reason why they always whine and complain and make racist remarks when a Coke a Cola commercial plays the National Anthem in various languages including Native American languages. The Senate will ensure students will never learn to program since programing languages is not an English language.

No, but actually reading them might.

sn3h1t87 avatarI think you're missing the real point here. Computer languages are NOT foreign languages. Foreign languages teach mental dexterity in the verbal domain and allow people to experiences worldviews other than their own. Computer languages teach systematic thinking.

So what you really need here is:

"Kentucky: Logic = Foreign Language."
