Ed Vaizey, UK Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries once said, “Computer skills are the grammar of the 21st Century.” But not enough schools have the budget or funding for these types of programs. According to http://www.code.org/stats:
Less than 2.4% of college students graduate with a degree in computer science
9 out of 10 schools don’t even offer computer programming classes
In 36 of 50 states, coding classes don’t count towards high school graduation math or science requirements
Code.org preaches an important message: “What most schools don’t teach” with BIG names to back it up: Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, will.i.am, Chris Bosh, Jack Dorsey, Tony Hsieh, Drew Houston, Gabe Newell, Ruchi Sanghvi, Elena Silenok, Vanessa Hurst, and Hadi Partovi. Directed by Lesley Chilcott, executive producers Hadi and Ali Partovi.
These guys MUST think it’s pretty important! So why aren’t you doing something about it? Talk to you child about the importance of learning a new language – code, design, technical computer skills! And bring their friends along!
