S Education Act introduced into Congress


Exciting to hear that CS education is getting this kind of attention. I’d love to actually see what’s in the bill. Anybody know how to find the text? To reverse these troubling trends and prepare Americans for jobs in this high-wage, high-growth field, the Computer Science Education Act will:

  1. Ensure computer science offerings are an integral part of the curriculum;
  2. Develop state computer science standards, curriculum, and assessments;
  3. Improve access to undeserved populations;
  4. Create professional development and teacher certification initiatives, including computer science teacher preparation programs in higher education;
  5. Form a commission on computer science education to bring states together to address the computer science teacher certification crisis; and,
  6. Establish an independent, rigorous evaluation of state efforts with reporting back to Congress and the administration.
