Why K-12 Computer Science Education is Critical

06/16/16 at 11:59am

The U.S. leads the world in technology innovation, but our leadership is jeopardized by insufficient support for computer science education in our nation’s K-12 schools. Today, even as our economy is increasingly driven by information technology, only one of four K-12 schools in the U.S. offers any computer science courses. We can and must do better!

Voices for Innovation held a webinar focused on the broad-based movement to win federal funding committed specifically to K-12 computer science education. Erin Siefring, Chair of the Computer Science Education Coalition, discussed what’s at stake and how you can help bring attention to the need for federal funding to modernize American education for our 21st-century digital economy and society.
