Advocacy -'s advocacy efforts aim to support policies that increase access to k-12 computer science for all students; we advocate for state-level adoption of a policy framework to support and expand k-12 computer science. In particular, our main policy focus is getting every school to offer at least one computer science course and supporting this through the allocation of state funding for computer science professional development to grow the number of teachers who are prepared to teach computer science courses, and encouraging states to develop or adopt k-12 computer science standards.
