the most imminent issue china faces is not whether the kids should learn coding or not, it is about  ...

You guys have touted that to a myriad of countries like those in Latin America, Southeast Asia, which now have all been suffering protracted political and economical turmoils.

So pack it up, and deal with the maladies in your own country.
Believe it or not, it's true.

These courses can start with the "big picture" with an appreciation module first. Once the children pass this stage, they can then progress with more advance courses. Not everyone can do coding so that must be acknowledged.

Figment of your imagination ...

By the way, the percentage of China's exports to the US is shrinking rapidly, and it's only a matter of time the US market will turn into a marginal destination for China's gargantuan export portfolio, and the US will be on all fours whining about its missteps towards Sino-US trade disputes.
Believe it or not, it's true.

Coding should be done with excellent human-machine interface. Just like Window base driven computer application software that takes one less than three minutes to learn and use it with versatility!

During the 1908s, many Chinese students studying computer science in US despised US students learning to use the computer with the mouse. To the Chinese students studying computer science, they looked down on those US students for being lazy and never want to learn new knowledge. In fact, the Chinese students were incorrect! Computer must walk into the life of everyone!
Lesson from Texas Instruments was that its calculator was self made obsolete because Japanese made calculators were too easy to use without need to learn!

Yes because what children need to learn at a young age are problem-solving skills using logical reasoning. Coding is an excellent and inexpensive way to teach children cognitive skills such as pattern recognition and reasoning skills such as deductive reasoning. But coding is just one aspect of Computer Science and Engineering which is part of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) disciplines which should become part of the national culture not just the educational curriculum. Only then can China build a scientific culture and a technologically advanced industrial civilization.
