In the 2019 Legislative Session of the Tennessee General Assembly, the Greater Nashville Technology Council supported legislation that required the state Department of Education to produce a study on the availability of computer science education across the state.
That report has finally been released! https://files.constantcontact.com/a5121d18701/00c05991-9ffc-4f2c-b3be-bf5d574aed36.pdf
The NTC, in conjunction with ChaTech, the Greater Memphis IT Council, and Knoxville Technology Council (see links below) convened a panel discussion on the findings with leaders from across the state who were part of the task force that worked to produce the report.
