Washington State House votes to count computer science for math/science credit
So cool! There is a petition on the linked page (below) if you would like to express your support for this bill.
In overwhelming fashion, the Washington State House voted 95-3 to pass a new bill in the Washington State Legislature that may allow computer science classes to count as a math or science requirement toward high school graduation.
The bill now moves onto the Senate.
Currently, Washington high schoolers who take a computer science class don’t receive a math or science credit. HB 1472 would enable this and “provide initiatives to improve and expand access to computer science education.”
