Access to K-12 computer science education grows across the country
from By: Bambi Majumdar (commentary)
One recent change in education involves a multistate initiative to expand access to and diversity in K-12 computer science. 33 states have passed legislation to that effect in 2019, and about $42.5 million has been funded for this cause. Interest in computer science education is rising, as it should in the digital age. Stakeholders, from parents to policymakers, recognize the importance of this investment. Much of this success can be attributed to the Code.org Advocacy Coalition, which has worked hard at advocating the cause since 2013.
