Draft Standards Neglect Computer Science, Computing in the Core Coalition Says

Like I mentioned earlier, the new draft science standards don’t say much about computing, and “Computing in the Core” is pushing back.

“While the draft science standards include elements of computer science and computing concepts in the Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science topics, the attention paid to the discipline of computer science does not match its importance in terms of workforce demand and the opportunities it presents young people in the 21st century,” the coalition says.
