Three computer science policy goals for states
from eSchool News
The push for computer science education, including making it more accessible and making it eligible for high school science or math requirements instead of only counting as an elective, is growing. At the National Governors Association Winter Meeting, Governors Asa Hutchinson, R-Ark., and Jay Inslee, D-Wash., announced a new partnership intended to promote K-12 computer science education at the state level. The partnership focuses on specific policy goals to help states advocate for and advance computer science education. Despite growing national awareness of and support for computer science skills, few school offer it as a course — just 1 in 4, according to Code.org.
