Computer coding as a foreign language?



Habla... HTML?

The proposed law from Sen. Jeremy Ring, D-Margate, would also require high schools to offer computer coding courses of "sufficient rigor" so students can exercise this alternative.

Another change: Students pursuing a Florida Bright Futures Scholarship would have to earn at least two credits in computer coding in order to be eligible to apply.
