Yes, we should be celebrating solving problems not coding. Yes, there has been an overwhelming push for bringing CS to more people, but people can choose to do what they want with it. I would rather have access to it than not. CS for the last 30 years or so is like science before the Renaissance, only a few knew how to do it and the instructions were cryptic. You say something is wrong if a Mayor needs coding to do his job. I'd actually prefer my elected officials to know how to parse and analyze data thank you very much. Plus, saying we shouldn't teach everyone to code because not everyone's job requires it, would be like 150 years ago saying we don't need to teach literacy because only a few people need to read for their jobs.
