Coding is a rising phenomenon in the United States, though slow the rise may be. A knowledge of coding can get you far and to high places because there is such a lack of coders now. Schools haven’t really integrated coding into core required classes, but it’s slowly working its way into the minds of educators. The primary goal of a teacher is to provide as much possible information for a student to discover so they can know wat’s out there, and that includes coding.
A couple of years ago, I got into coding on my own time and I really enjoyed it. However, it wasn’t easy to keep up with it and my outside studies. I could have kept it up but I didn’t have the proper teaching to continue.
Obama was trying to change that! He gave a WHOLE bunch of money to help fund teachers and schools to start providing these classes. The Obama administration tried to help coding become a subject more present in schools.
