Code.org trains 15,000 teachers in computer science
from USA Today
More kids than ever are going back to school this fall to learn something that just a few years ago they would never have been taught: computer science. Code.org says it's gaining momentum in its mission to get every U.S. school to add computer science to its curriculum. Founder Hadi Partovi told USA TODAY that Code.org and its partners this year trained more than 15,000 teachers who will bring computer science instruction into their classrooms. Code.org estimates those teachers will reach more than 600,000 students from kindergarten to 12th grade, many of whom are frequently overlooked by the tech industry: 43 percent are female and 37 percent are either African American or Latino.
