theodp writes: If new emails released by WikiLeaks are to be believed, Code.org co-founders Hadi and Ali Partovi advised Hillary Clinton to embrace computer science if she wants to be the next President. "Computer Science is about jobs and equity in every state in America, and it wins elections," begins Ali Partovi in a May 2015 email to Hillary for America CTO Stephanie Hannon and others. "Whichever candidate embraces it first will be seen as a visionary leader when it comes to about jobs, economic growth, and America's future." Hadi Partovi, CEO of tech-backed Code.org, adds: "One thing to consider, *Any* time Hillary says 'STEM', if she instead said 'Computer science' she'd have more voters understand and support her. Of course, STEM is *critically important* to our country. However, STEM is not where the job growth is or where the gender disparity is. STEM is also not where the H1B skilled immigration problem is." He concludes, "I'd love to work with the Clinton campaign to help sharpen a focus on this issue. Even if it's just participation in a marketing gimmick around the Hour of Code." In June, Clinton unveiled her tech plan, which promises to "engage the private sector and nonprofits to train up to 50,000 computer science teachers in the next decade."
