Retweeted by Vanessa Hurst@davidfetter @codeorg we need to move past CS as vocational to really prepare students to explore what's possible (as with art, lit, etc)@davidfetter @codeorg fair enough :) there are some excellent groups working on this though e.g. @csnyc @csteachersa@davidfetter @codeorg I don't see hs compsci as subject matter training :) more learning new ways to think about problems & resources@davidfetter @codeorg My experience across 3 HS systems was that even non-college-prep sciences were valued over CS, CS was discouraged@davidfetter @codeorg this sounds like a different argument than the idea math & other sciences don't get enough resources?@davidfetter @codeorg 1) academic credit eligibility is not a zero sum game, 2) lack of eligibility restricts student exposure & potentialHALF of all states now allow CS to count towards high school graduation. 25 to go! http://t.co/rzkDEu809h http://t.co/dLAicBjPPN
