Do students in Lodi have enough opportunities to learn coding or computer programming? District officials say not quite, but the door to more coding classes is open.

Lodi Unified School District Board President Ralph Womack said he wasn’t familiar with any classes that specifically teach coding, though several broader courses are open.

    I can't believe there aren't more programming classes available at LUSD, especially considering how fast technology is moving these days (and Silicon Valley being as close as it is to us). I graduated high school almost twenty years ago and had at least one semester of Pascal programming—and this was in a small school in the upper Great Plains.

    There is not enough emphasis on Math in this school system. However, I taught myself how to program before I went to college and just got better afterwards. But in my Texas school education, there was more emphasis on math and physics than I see anywhere in California.
