In Finland, Teaching Computer Science Without Computers - The Atlantic
"But unlike in some parts of the United States where learning to code is an isolated skill, Finnish children are taught to think of coding and programming more as tools to be explored and utilized across multiple subjects." Which deals neatly with the notion too many US students get that coding is just for sitting in basements.

Tressie McMillan Cottom Excerpt from 'Lower Ed' - The Atlantic
"When investors and politicians say that for-profit colleges offer a flexible solution to retrain the country’s workforce, they are talking about inequality. Whose training in the jobs of the 20th century is now obsolete in the 21st century? Who needs a flexible solution? Women who carry the burden of primary childcare, men working more than one job, older adults caring for both their parents and their own children—a group for whom time isn’t just money, but also the absence of money."
