Computer science to be added to Virginia education requirements
from Richmond Free Press
The three R's of education are getting a new addition in Virginia — computer science. As part of education reforms approved in the recent session, the General Assembly unanimously passed legislation making the theory and practice of computer operations and the ability to write software code part of a well-rounded education on par with the traditional subjects of reading, writing and arithmetic. If signed by the governor as expected, Virginia would be the first state to require public schools in Richmond and across the state to incorporate computer science and computer coding into K-12 education.
