Obama's Computer Science Revolution



Obama's Computer Science Revolution

Thanks to President Obama, 2000+ schools are launching AP Computer Science this fall. More than half of all STEM jobs are projected to involve computer science by 2018. And over 90 percent of parents want their kids to have access to computer science courses. However, only one quarter of K-12 schools offer accredited programming classes.


Obama issued a plea to solve this problem in his final State of the Union Address. Over 300 organizations have since pledged $250 million to help the cause and 31 states now allow computer science classes to count toward graduation. The ultimate goal is to make computer science accessible to every child in America.
