Every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer programming. Computer science should be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra.

Unfortunately, computer science courses in high school are often electives. In fact, only 13 states and DC clearly allow a rigorous CS course, such as AP CS to count toward math/science graduation requirements.
