More companies sign onto Obama's 'Computer Science for All' initiative
Computer science education is starting to catch on. Nineteen new members recently joined the Computer Science Education Coalition, an expanding organization composed of more than 60 leading tech firms that are pushing Congress to approve $250 million to expand coding programs and courses in K-12 schools across the country. When President Barack Obama announced he would request the funding for the Computer Science for All initiative in his federal budget proposal, tech companies like Google, Salesforce, Amazon and Code.org came on board to offer investments and teacher training for a workforce that may be unfamiliar with computer science education.
The Computer Science Teachers Association is also a member of the Computer Science Education Coalition (CSEC).
