Anthony A Owen, Heather Lageman, Kevin Nolten, Pat Yongpradit Computer Science Standards: Best Practices Summary The U.S. has over half a million unfilled computing jobs, and computing jobs are projected to grow at 2x the rate of any other job over the next 10 years. Like History, Math or English, Computer Science is recognized by educators and parents alike as a critical skill for career readiness. However, most states have not yet adopted computer science learning standards, and only 25% of schools teach computer science at all. State Boards of Education are key: 45 state boards of education have authority to design and implement education standards, but only 5 states have CS standards. This panel will highlight why CS standards are important, and how to get them passed in your state.
