Law Calls For More Computer Science Instruction In Washington Schools

The Issaquah (WA) Press (6/4, Clark) reported, “In a bill drafted and promoted by freshman State Rep. Chad Magendanz, the state has undertaken the commitment to increase the availability of computer science instruction within the schools.” The “bill states that the Legislature ‘intends to take additional steps to improve and expand access to computer science education, particularly in advanced courses that could prepare students for careers in the field.’” Magendanz “said he hopes to offer ways to bring many specialists that make up the workforce of big technology giants like Microsoft into classrooms. With their skilled knowledge of advanced computer science, many of those experienced technicians have shown an interest in sharing their time with students.”
