Should all children should be taught to code in school?
Teaching coding effectively is impossible unless enough teachers are
It is difficult to recruit the required number of coding teachers.
There is currently not enough funding to properly train and support coding teachers.
Teaching most school subjects requires appropriate training. Inadequate teacher training is a problem that is
not unique to programming
An increasing number of educational apps are being developed that allow for teaching coding without any teacher guidance. For example,
Teachers would not need a degree in computer science to start teach coding to young kids. After all, a grade school teacher doesn't need to know that much science, math and history to teach the basics of those subjects. The same is true for coding.
If the inability of teachers to teach was the reason subjects would be neglected, then education as such would never have been possible from the beginning on.
People with programming experience could be hired to teach coding in schools.
