It is thought that coding schools might end up taking over the future of education, according to some tech experts. “Coding has become cool again. But most schools are not equipped to deal with the great need of students to learn the language of machines,” says D. Frank Smith.

Experts like Adam Enbar, president of New York’s Flatiron School, said that coding has the potential to make a major shift in education. Enbar’s argument is based on the following statement: "When was the last time an entirely new subject was added to the curriculum?" Great question, while STEM learning have been “new approaches” to learning, they are still needed to make existing subjects like science and English a better learning experience. Coding on the other hand is an entirely new type of curriculum and subject matter that makes you really question whether it has the potential to take up time spent on other subjects in the coming years.

Flatiron School is one of several coding schools across the country that have found success by teaching adults — and now students — the basics of web and mobile software development through courses that last just a few weeks. This year, the school expanded its pre-college program to Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, and Austin, Texas. The school’s Pre-College Academy gives teens a chance to learn how to code before they pursue higher education and begin making career decisions.

Students learn skills such as how to build web and mobile platforms and gain knowledge about real world tools. The IT industry is finding it difficult to fill all of its positions with fresh graduates as the field develops rapidly. Coding schools are preparing students for a market that is full of job openings and potential, not only now, but also in the future. Districts might want to start to begin a serious change in learning as students could demand more coding options in school.
