Computer science education bill gets Washington governor's signature, establishes funding and standards for teaching programming
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee signed House Bill 1813 into law. The law establishes K-12 education standards for computer science courses, in addition to providing scholarship funds for teachers to get trained in computer science education and establishing related standards for teachers. The bill was passed by both the state House and Senate. It prioritizes reaching students who are often underrepresented in computer science education. Of the 1,048 students who took the AP computer science test last year, only 260 were female, 23 were African American and 25 were Hispanic.
