CS Ed: Preparing Informed Decision-Makers and Innovators

Full Description: 

In this blog post on the American Youth Policy Forum website, EDC's Jim Stanton discusses why computer science education is so important for all students--not just a few--as key preparation for our increasingly wired world and workplaces. Jim talks about the importance of state CS Ed and digital literacy standards, such as those that the Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education developed with EDC's MassCAN, in expanding access to CS Ed. He notes that, with its Standards, Massachusetts is setting in motion a comprehensive, systemic, thoughtful, and nation-leading approach to making CS Ed available in all K–12 schools, to all students.
