At the Crossroads 2017 Conference, Jim Stanton, Hal Speed (CS4TX / Micro:bit Education Foundation), and Jennifer Zinth (Education Commission of the States), will take part in a panel moderated by Cameron Wilson (Code.org): "The National Computer Science Education Policy Landscape." During the panel, Jim and his colleagues will discuss findings from the recent report, "State of the States Landscape: State-Level Policies Supporting Equitable K-12 Computer Science Education," which illuminates some of the toughest issues being tackled to support computer science education policies across all 50 states. Sponsored and hosted by Infosys Foundation USA, the invitation-only Crossroads Conference brings together thought leaders—researchers, innovators, practitioners, and influencers—to examine how to best increase access to high-quality education in Computer Science, Coding, and Making, with a particular focus on equity and Inclusion.
