In a video called "What most schools don't teach," we learn from various developers, including Microsoft's own Bill Gates and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn to code.
"Learning to write programs stretches your mind, and helps you think better, creates a way of thinking about things that I think is helpful in all domains," Bill Gates believes regarding computer programming education in schools.
The video features celebrities such as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, will.i.am, Chris Bosh, Jack Dorsey, Tony Hsieh, Drew Houston, Gabe Newell, Ruchi Sanghvi, Elena Silenok, Vanessa Hurst, and Hadi Partovi. Take a look at the video below, and hit the source link to pledge your support:
