More than CS10K: 100Kin10

October 18, 2011 at 7:25 am Leave a comment

CS10K is the NSF effort to have 10,000 qualified high school teachers prepared to teach Advanced Placement Computer Science by 2015. 100Kin10 is a new one for me:

In January 2011, Carnegie Corporation of New York, Opportunity Equation, and NewSchools Venture Fund convened a diverse group of organizations to respond to this need. The focus: to prepare, deploy, and support 100,000 excellent STEM teachers over the coming 10 years in order to prepare all students with the high-quality STEM knowledge and skills needed to address the most pressing national and global challenges of tomorrow.

International test scores are irrelevant for national competitiveness or number of STEM workers “We’ve got to teach kids to program, but not as a subject in isolation.”
