West Virginia Policy Makers Stand Up for 21st-Century Learning
Late last week, policy makers within the West Virginia Department of Education adopted a rule that would allow high school students to count computer science courses as fourth-year mathematics credits. This action follows a year of activity in which policy makers from the Mountain State have sought opportunities to expand access to coursework within the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math.
Common Sense Kids Action applauds these efforts and believes that greater student access to computer science courses means a better-suited workforce. Common Sense Kids Action is working at the state level to promote policies that will make it easier for school districts, higher-education institutions, and regional business leaders to work together to provide these opportunities to students to help them succeed in a career or at college.
