Good Editorial on Teaching Computer Science in K-12 Schools

May 26, 2016
I agree pretty strongly with the viewpoint of this article. When I contrast the computer science education I received in public High School (writing programs in BASIC and FORTRAN to solve real problems) vs. what I see a lot of now (drag and drop block programming environments like Scratch, Mindstorms, iOS apps, etc.) I wonder whether kids are really gaining an understanding of basic computer science and logical principles.
