Should Kids Learn to Code?

An interesting question for sure. Do you think it would be a good idea to start teaching the basics of programming languages at some level in the formal education process in school systems?

If coding is to be made a mandatory subject in schools, it needs to be done in just the same, practical-minded way. Ground students in the principles, communicate that ownership and responsibility are as possible with computer programs as anything else, and then move them on to the next thing.
