Building on the President’s Call to Action to Expand Computer Science Education in K-12 Schools
In 2014, President Obama became the first President to write a line of code, and as part of his January 13, 2016 weekly address to the Nation, he launched Computer Science for All, a bold new initiative to empower all Americans from kindergarten through high school to learn computer science and be equipped with the computational thinking skills they need to become the leaders and designers of our digital economy.
As part of the new initiative, the President issued a broad call to action to expand computer science (CS) in K-12 classrooms, calling on Governors, Mayors, companies, foundations, non-profits, tech entrepreneurs and education leaders to do more to make this critical subject available to students. As part of the #CSforAll launch, more than 50 organizations announced new actions to advance access to CS education, and today that list has grown to more than 400. For more information click here.
In the remaining months, the Administration is planning to highlight both the progress made to date, and new actions to expand access to CS education.
We welcome the opportunity to work with you to highlight new, specific, and measurable steps that your organization is ready to take in these or other areas. If applicable, your announcement may be incorporated into White House materials and your organization and relevant partners may be invited to participate in upcoming White House events on this topic. Examples of White House fact sheets include the fact sheet announcing Computer Science for All, may serve as templates for this event.
