Exciting that Kennesaw University now has an approved high CS teacher endorsement program! That makes two in the state, the other being the original at Columbus State. This doesn’t fix the problem of getting teachers into these programs. Maybe a program in the Atlanta area may draw a different audience than an on-line program in West Georgia. In any case, it is a positive for CS10K, in that it increases the potential production of teachers. Now we just need more teachers taking these programs.
This endorsement is intended to prepare computer science teachers (grades 6 through 12). It will lead to teacher certification in the teaching field of computer science in Georgia. As an endorsement, the teaching candidate must already have or simultaneously obtain a teaching certification in another field.
