I think this is much more relevant to both coding, and applicable to other disciplines as well. I do very little coding, I don't find it interesting, it's not at all the same basic knowledge base as history, civics, math, science. Coding is a higher level that requires a base first. I'm not skeptical of introducing code at such a young age, but I'm skeptical of treating it as if it's a basic thing many/most/all kids should understand.
