A pun on "class talk" cute. However I'll stick to my guns that high school is where to start with these new classes, as that's when they start picking tracks, more like in college.
Elementary school is more a bundled package deal and they have those extra-curricular computer and chess clubs (non-credit).
As HS adapts to the present and opens new doors with CS-enabled math credit offerings, elementary schools can't help but take note and adapt accordingly.
I'm a believer in wagging the tail, not the dog, and see elementary school as the tail in this case.
