I know that very few people can actually program well or at all for that matter. But it is such an efficient way to create tools that are personalized and make life easier. With things like Google App Creater and the very basic Scratch programming language, how important do you think it is that programming be taught as part of the curriculum in elementary schools across the nation?

Hello, I think this is a great idea! It would help the brain of the kids to develop faster and we'd be able to pick the kids with extraordinary abilities out of the crowd and promote them.

it is a very good idea to teach to children about programming, but in my own side i think teaching this to children is not advisable, their brain is not yet developed to take this subject, considering that programming is a tedious task. what programming language are familiar with?
