23 June 12, 2012 Conclusion

24 June 12, 2012 Conclusion K-12 computer science education will open more economic opportunities than any other subject for the 21 st Century. The future is bright for students entering in this field or gaining this critical knowledge to apply to almost any field of employment. Jobs in computing are among the fastest growing of any profession and pay higher wages. Despite these opportunities, significant barriers exist to exposing students to computer science in K-12 and keeping them in the computing education pipeline We need to address the key issues: –Clarify the role and place for K-12 computer science education –Lift state standards and make courses “count” –Support computer science teachers –Address diversity issues We need to put computer science within the core of a student’s education
