Human education is completely dependent upon technology. As the machines we use become more advanced, we as humans must adapt not only to using them, but understanding how they work. Based upon this, it could be argued that coding is on its way to becoming a required second language for upcoming generations, as some find it necessary not just as a career, but as a way of navigating life. Others still view it as a specialty. What do you think?

Long gone are the days when coding was affiliated with hackers and nerds in their parents’ basements. Now everyone, anywhere, from any social circle is being encouraged to code. Putting aside the fact it’s one of the most coveted jobs of the century, learning the basics of those ones and zeros could go a long way in everyday life.

Think about it: You could spend your life shutting down and restarting your computer every time something goes awry (which, honestly, works pretty well), or you can look deep into its HTML and make a long-term fix. It’s way cheaper than bringing it to the computer store; plus, you’ll be able to feel like a super villain.

It’s good to know basic coding, but it doesn’t have to be necessary. Basic medical training is also a good thing to know, but should it be required education? Not really. Coding is something that people can teach themselves on their own time. Everyone else can take the time and educate themselves on other things. And, you know, not get confused by machines.

Math, science, literature, and world studies are the four basic foundations of a solid education. Everything else is a specialty that can be learned by the individual. Unless it’s gym class—then it’s just pointless.
