President Outlines $4 Billion "Computer Science For All" Education Plan

The president is seeking billions from Congress to ensure that students are competitive in a job market that rewards technological know-how.

The president had mentioned the need for broader access to computer science classes in his State of the Union address earlier this month, but had not provided much in the way of details until Saturday’s announcement. If Congress approves the president’s budget request, the $4 billion would be doled out over a period of three years to any state that applies for the funds and has a well-designed plan to expand access to computer science courses, especially for girls and minorities.
