Vietnamese HS Students Excelling at CS

An anonymous reader writes "A Google engineer visiting Vietnam discovered a large portion of Vietnamese high school students might be able to pass a Google interview. According to TFA and his blog students start learning computing as early as grade 2. According to the blogger and another senior engineer, about half of the students in an 11th grade class he visited would be able to make through their interview process. The blogger also mentioned US school boards blocking computer science education. The link he posted backing up his claim went to a Maryland Public Schools website describing No Child Left Behind technicalities. According to the link, computer science is not considered a core subject. While the blogger provided no substantial evidence of US school boards blocking computer science education, he claimed that students at Galileo Academy had difficulty with the HTML image tag. According to the school's wikipedia page, by California standards, Galileo seems to be one of the state's better secondary schools."
