Was just thinking about this problem a little while traveling last week after a recent board meeting. Curious how others have solved for this in their community/state.
Don’t know the answer but I will say that the first class that you take on coding can make or break interest for a student.
When I took a coding class in high school, the teacher was awful at it. He was trying his best but I made up my mind that I won’t touch it again. It wasn’t until my curiosity to work on side projects that brought me back to code and I just started learning on my own on the internet.
