Congratulations Idaho!

IDAHO IS A COMPUTER SCIENCE LEADER according to Code.org. Code.org is a national non-profit dedicated to expanding access to Computer Science in schools and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities. Their vision is that every student in every school has the opportunity to learn Computer Science. They have come up with nine policy recommendations that every state could adopt to help move Computer Science Education forward. Idaho is now the second state in the nation behind Arkansas to implement all nine. Click here to read all nine recommendations and more Idaho statistics.
