Summary

This panel discussion will explore the challenges of implementing computer science in P-12 schools and the innovative ways various states, districts and schools are providing CS to students. We will explore questions such as: Where does CS fit in elementary, middle and high school curricula? Should CS count towards core graduation requirement? If so, how? Some propose CS count as a foreign language; others suggest CS replace certain math or science classes. If CS is added, what if anything can be cut? Hear what is working and various options if U.S. schools are to raise up a new generation of computationally savvy students and meet the national call to action for “Computer Science for All?”
