This report presents findings from the second year of Gallup and Google’s multiyear, comprehensive
research effort to better understand perceptions of CS and access to CS learning opportunities in K-12
schools in the U.S. More than 16,000 seventh- to 12th-grade students, parents of seventh- to 12th-grade
students and K-12 teachers, principals and superintendents were surveyed for Year 2 of this study. This
report focuses on changes from Year 1 on key K-12 indicators for opportunities to learn CS (including
awareness of and access to CS), perceptions of CS, demand for CS, and challenges for CS in K-12 schools.
