To better understand how computer science teachers think about equity, the authors conducted a qualitative study in which they surveyed participants about their views on the topic. Using a paradigm stressing educator belief systems in perpetuating inequities in computer science education and the significance of equity-focused professional development for teachers, we investigated how computer science teachers understand the topic of equity in the classroom.
