California Considers Adding Computer Science to Core College Admission Requirements

The California Legislature is considering a bill that would allow high school students to count their computer science classes toward college math admission requirements. SB 1200, sponsored by State Senator Alex Padilla (D-Pacoima), asks the state’s two university systems to match up their admissions standards in math and language arts to those of the Academic Content Standards Commission. The comission benchmarks at least 85 percent of its standards to the Common Core State Standards. The bill would require the California State University system to align its standards, but requests the same from the University of California system. It also would have them develop guidelines so that high school computer science courses could satisfy math requirements for admissions purposes.
