Paul Goldenberg has over 40 years of experience in K–12 mathematics curriculum development, research, and professional development. He has taught from self-contained elementary (Grades 2 and 4) through middle and high school mathematics and computer science, as well as graduate school mathematics and psychology for education. Currently, Paul and his long-time collaborator June Mark are the co-Principal Investigators of BJC4NYC—an NSF Math and Science Partnership (MSP) in which EDC is collaborating with UC Berkeley, the New York City Department of Education, and the NYC Foundation for Computer Science Education to broaden participation in computer science in New York City public high schools. In this post, written in celebration of Computer Science Education Week 2015 (December 7–13) and Hour of Code, Paul shares some thoughts about computer science education.

Two Fields Come Together in New Center for Afterschool and Summer Enrichment

This article spotlights the new Office of Child Care-funded National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment that EDC is leading, and features quotes from EDC Senior Project Director Tony Streit, who is heading up the center: "It’s part of a comprehensive technical assistance system for the Office of Child Care,” said Tony Streit. "This is really a new strategy for them." He said that the Office of Child Care recognized there’s a strong intersection between the child care and after-school fields. In fact, the office serves approximately 1.5 million low-income children, more than one-third of whom are school age. It spends $19 billion annually on care for school-age children.
