The drop in uni uptake is an iteertsning point. I have spoken to a couple of head teachers in big schools in the Inverness area that have no Computing at all. The key point seems to be a pupil wishing to study Computer Science courses only needs Higher Maths. The argument being we don't need Computing teaching at all and pupils can still do the uni courses if they want.Obviously it would be a brave move from the Unis but they may need to give more weight to the new Higher course as a pre-requisite for entry. The uni numbers are dropping as pupils are having less and less experience of Computing in schools so why not be bold and say pupils need Higher Computing. CfE implementation is a distant second to saving staffing costs. If parents start finding out their children cannot follow career paths they desire because the schools are not teaching the subjects that would really push the Computing agenda along.
