President Obama Pushed for Computer-Science Education

Published in The Atlantic

In order to address the need for the next generation workforce to develop skills in computer science, the President has asked congress to fund a $4 billion proposal that will be spent over three years to train teachers, connect schools with corporate and nonprofit partners, and expand instructional material. The funding programs, which will appear in the president’s forthcoming budget proposal for 2017, are just the latest effort from the White House to bring more science and technology education to students.
