Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi is asking the State Board of Education to make computer science a part of the core curriculum in high schools and SUNY universities. “Computer science has become a crucial skill for young people who want to succeed in the 21st Century workplace,” Brindisi said.

He has written to State Education Commissioner John King and State University Chancellor Nancy Zimpher to ask them to include computer science classes as a math or science credit in high schools and as part of a liberal arts degree in SUNY institutions.

Right now computer science counts only as an elective in New York State schools and fewer than 2,000 students were taking advanced placement (“AP”) computer science classes last year.
