Lee, Young-Jin – Gifted Child Today, 2011
Despite the educational benefits, computer programming has not been adopted in the current K-12 education as much as it could have been.

Zubrzycki, Jaclyn – Education Week, 2012
Educators and experts say students still need to learn penmanship, even in a digital age.

Roy, Ken – Science Scope, 2005
Unless the teacher is working at an ergonomically designed workstation, using a computer can result in eyestrain, neck aches, backaches, and headaches.
