A new report by the Southern Regional Education Board, or SREB, provides states with a road map to improve computer science education. The report calls for states to:

• Develop computer science standards for K-12;

• Lay the groundwork for learning computer science by including more computer science in early grades and requiring four years of math for all high school students;

• Include computer science career pathways in state accountability and funding systems;

• Hire teachers with content knowledge and interest in learning computer science; and

• Make career advisement a part of education across K-12.
