Apple CEO Tim Cook wants to teach every Chicago public school student to code

December 12, 2017View for printing

Tech giant Apple is setting its eyes on teaching coding to every public school student in one of the biggest and most racially diverse school districts in the nation.

Apple CEO Tim Cook told USA TODAY that the company -- which like many top tech firms has faced calls from politicians and activists to take steps to diversify its workforce -- in the New Year will partner with Chicago school system officials to teach the coding language Swift in city classrooms and through after-school coding clubs in a school district.
