Bridging the Computer Science Education Gap
Five Actions States Can Take
The Report of the SREB Commission on Computer Science and Information Technology
SREB’s Commission on Computer Science and Information Technology offers five actions for states and schools to help more young people — especially girls, black and Hispanic students, and students from low-income families — learn computer science and explore and choose careers in computing fields.
The actions show how schools can teach computer science and computational thinking in ways that deepen students’ mastery of core academic subjects. The full report also surveys the disciplines, workforce needs and current state of computer science education at the K-12 and postsecondary levels.
