Faculties were created to allow CfE to be implemented efficiently? No they weren't - they were a money saving exercise to pay for PT's in the Primary sector. Some HT's thought it a good idea to combine Business Studies and Computing into a Faculty. Why??? Er - they both use computers??? The worst of all worlds seems to be where the Bus St/Comp Fac head has no interest in Computing e.g. with a B. S.t background. Makes you wonder how they got the job in the first place doesn't it. When you hear reports of such situations where Computing has been allowed to decline or be wiped out altogether it does make you wonder how this has been allowed to happen. When a Faculty head allows one part (1/2) of the faculty to disappear they arguably do not deserve their Fac Head bonus. These are failing/failed faculties. In England, their qualifications are being beefed up and Computing Science in particular is being given its rightful place in the curriculum. Pupils are being enthused by programmable electronic systems such as Raspberry pi and Arduino. Meanwhile in Scotland we are engaged in a 'race to the trough' - dumbing down and cutting out. Scotland's 21st Century economy needs pupils to be highly skilled in Computing. Computing Science (to give the subject its proper title) should be immediately decoupled from Business Studies and reinstated as a single subject department with a PT as head. If not its pig ignorance here we come!!
