California’s Brown Urged to Require Computer Education

Executives from Twitter Inc., Google Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Netflix Inc. signed a letter urging California Governor Jerry Brown to support efforts to provide students with greater access to computer science classes.

Lawmakers in Sacramento are considering six bills that promote technology courses, including one that would require them in public elementary schools.

“Learning to code at a young age opened my eyes to the incredibly exciting world of technology and entrepreneurship,” said Marc Benioff, chief executive officer of Inc., one of the executives who signed the letter.

Less than 5 percent of California public schools now teach computer science, according to Code.Org, a non-profit group founded by Silicon Valley angel investors Hadi and Ali Partovi that prepared the letter.
