NCAA: Computer Science Is Not Acceptable For Credit

    April 13, 2005

Kevin Schofield (he plays a key role at Microsoft Research in getting tech out of research and into our products) …

“Read the last paragraph on page 1. The NCAA has decided that computer science is not acceptable for credit towards fulfilling the course requirements.”

That’s outrageous. Our academic standards are falling again, just to serve our sports teams.

It’s amazing. Every team I’m meeting lately is looking for great programmers. And American schools are lowering standards.

We deserve what we get when other countries kick our behind in technology.
