It’s estimated that only about 10 percent of K-12 schools teach computer science. Some companies are trying to fill a void in American public education by teaching kids computer programming basics. The push comes amid projections that there will be far more tech sector jobs than computer science graduates to fill them.
Though computer programming is becoming more important, many K-12 schools don’t offer classes. Now commercial products are starting to offer at-home learning, offering sleek new platforms focused on teaching how to think like a computer programmer.
