Should Programming replace History in schools? Watch
I did History GCSE and CompSci GCSE with a heavy programming element to it and it was absolutely fine. I enjoyed History a lot which reflected in my marks..
Not entirely sure why one needs to replace the other.
"Those who don't know history are doomed to endless loop it."
Should History be replaced by Programming for GCSEs? Considering how pretty much every company is using technology/software now, it seems this would have much more real - world value.
this is like saying everyone should learn to type instead of learning English. are you that dumb?

If you want to understand the above question history helps with that.
History is very important to learn, people should know the history of their country/others, this way we know why things are the way they are today.
Programming is becoming a worry though. Tim Cook, CEO of Apple recommended to Donald Trump that programming should be tough in all schools, seeing as Cook is the CEO of one of the biggest tech giants in the world, there is a clear lack in this profession, for the past 30 years, technology has been improving massively and people have wanted to know how it works, hence why a lot of senior programmers are middle-aged, however, the young people of today are growing up with the technology with them, it works and that is all they care about, not how and why it works.
I do not think history should be replaced, but I do think the government should be working alongside companies, such as Apple to decide what is best, the simple answer is, something should be done and yes programming should be taught at all schools.
