Landscape of CS Education

The Kapor Center and CSTA conducted a national survey of PreK-12 CS teachers in the U.S. to understand the current landscape of CS teachers, their demographics, identity, teaching background, school context, professional development, curriculum, instructional practice, satisfaction with CS teaching, and knowledge of and use of culturally responsive teaching practices. Between May and July 2020, a total of 3,693 PreK-12 CS teachers participated, from all 50 states.
