Computer Science Access for Students of Color: Disparities and Opportunities

This presentation, given to the 2015 California Department of Education STEM Symposium in San Diego, CA (October 29, 2015), explored disparities in Computer Science course access in California high schools with highest proportions of: underrepresented students of color, low-income students, and English language learners. These findings, part of the Path Not Found report released earlier in 2015, were accompanied by programmatic examples of increasing Computer Science course access and discussions about how school districts could create strategic plans, partnerships and programs to increase their Computer Science course offerings.
