You might remember that President Obama became the first President to write a line of code last year. This year, in his Weekly Address, he announced his plan to give students across the country the chance to learn computer science in their school.
The President’s Computer Science for All Initiative is providing $4 billion in funding for states and $100 million directly for districts in his upcoming budget and investing more than $135 million to support and train CS teachers.
