- an analysis of national and state trends in AP CS by gender and race, including the relationship with policy adoption;
- a map of the states that have enacted particular policies;
- state-by-state summaries of each state’s progress; and
- updated data about high schools that teach computer science.
States that have adopted more of the nine policies have a greater percentage of high schools teaching computer science, and also have an increase in the representation of female students taking AP computer science exams.
Since the 2018 State of Computer Science Education report was published, 33 states passed 57 new laws and regulations promoting computer science.
Across 39 states, only 45% of high schools teach computer science. Students receiving free and reduced lunch and students from rural areas are less likely to attend a school that provides opportunities to learn this critical subject.
Since the K-12 Computer Science Access Report was launched in 2017, the initiative has collected data on 55% of all public K-12 schools and 83% of all public high schools.
