Make good on California’s commitment to equity — fund computer science classrooms

Julie Flapan, Director of the CS Equity Project, co-wrote a commentary discussing how the proposed California state budget for quality computer science education can address longstanding educational and career inequities that were magnified by remote learning in the pandemic.

Newsom’s budget proposal has the potential to address inequities in education, while proactively investing in the preparation of a computationally literate future workforce. The new funding equips our teachers and schools to tackle this divide head-on — improving and supporting computer science education so our students aren’t left even further behind.”
