Computer science in school: correcting the NY Times
The NY Times article says “In New York City, some of the most elite public schools, like Stuyvesant High School, have offered computer science courses for years.”
I graduated in 1985 and I took Computer Science and took the AP exam. So Stuyvesant has offered computer science for decades and not merely years. Wow, I’m old.
It’s pretty shameful, actually, that computer science still isn’t available in the vast majority of New York City public high schools. This demonstrates the benefit of private school. So I actually agree with De Blasio that expanding computer science education is a good idea.
