    Yeah, no. Math and English are core requirements in Chicago public schools. How many students are graduating nearly illiterate and innumerate? Saying you have a “core requirement” or core curriculum and actually teaching and learning the content of a core are different things. So, in other words, another cargo cult.

    One more subject schools can turn into an endless slog of memorization and tests. Any kid who wants to learn to code can find plenty of resources online, at a library or a bookstore. Schools already have too much on their plates.
