Designing an Equitable and Sustainable Computer Science Education Program

As computer science continues to grow, it is expected to outpace other fields in job opportunities, with a projected 3.5 million computing jobs open in the US by 2026 (1). Computing jobs pay more than double the average US salary (2). But today, only 40% of all schools (and an even lower percentage of elementary schools) teach computer programming or coding (3). This is the case even though nine out of ten parents surveyed want their child to learn computer science (4).
