STEM working group: Make computer science classes mandatory
from Business Record
A working group of the Iowa Governor's STEM Advisory Council says that Iowa high schools should make completion of computer science coursework a requirement for graduation. The recommendation is one of three overall goals of the council's Computer Science Workgroup for the coming legislative session, the group's co-facilitator, Mark Gruwell, said in an interview with the Technology Association of Iowa. "Our overall goal is to expose students as much as we can to computer science, and find a way to create a computer science pathway from pre-K through college so we can get students involved in and train them to go into computer science," Gruwell said.
