Had I taken a programming class in middle or high school, I might have found my love for code before my 30's. Had the people in my life been been less discouraging when I wrote a text based adventure game at 19 for fun, I wouldn't have a final next week to deal with. Girl nerds in the 90's was still rather taboo. So I'm all for a mandatory basic programming/comp sci class when kids are being forced to choose what they are going to do for the rest of their lives. However, I agree with the meaning of this and the previous harsher post. The learn to code movement is just rather silly. You can get the benefit of the problem solving easier from logic puzzles without having to bother with syntax. You can understand computers quicker by googling the issues that come up instead of asking someone to fix it.
