2018 State of  Computer Science Education

This report contains the status of computer science education policy across the nation and a first look at school-by-school data on the availability of computer science in high schools. Across 24 states, only 35% percent of high schools in the US teach computer science.

Code.org names nine varieties of policy that states can create to promote computer science education, and these fall into four categories: policies that create plans and set standards; policies that allocate funding or increase capacity by training teachers; policies that create dedicated computer science positions inside state government agencies; and policies that integrate computer science more tightly into school and university curriculums.
