The Computer Science Teachers’ Association of New Jersey and JerseyCAN released the following statements today regarding Governor Murhpy’s signing of a bill creating a Computer Science Education Teaching Endorsement:
The Computer Science Teachers’ Association applauds Governor Murphy for signing legislation creating a computer science education teaching endorsement. This endorsement recognizes the professional expertise of our current computer science teachers and creates a clear pathway for those teachers interested in teaching computer science in the future. With this new endorsement, we will ensure that our students have the most qualified computer science teachers.
– Daryl Detrick, Founding President, Computer Science Teacher’s Association of Central New Jersey
JerseyCAN believes Governor Murhpy’s approval of legislation creating a computer science education teaching endorsement is an important step towards creating a pipeline of future computer scientists. New Jersey currently has approximately 25,000 open computer science jobs. Giving students access to computer science courses taught by excellent computer science teachers will help prepare our students for the jobs of the future. This is yet another demonstration of Governor Murphy’s commitment to STEM education, which we believe will help grow New Jersey’s innovation economy.
– Patricia Morgan, Executive Director, JerseyCAN
