  7. An Introduction to CSTA Systemic Issues Why computer science is crucial for students Current challenges Transformation is underway Agenda

  8. CSTA was founded in 2004 in response to growing concern about the state of computer science in secondary schools. There is a substantial body of research pointing to the key role of professional associations in systemic educational improvement. Teachers are too isolated in their schools and too rarely offered real support by the post-secondary institutions or government. Why CSTA?
