Polling is a powerful tool to help our elected officials determine how they should vote.
Standard polling methods don't give you the control that you deserve. With BetterDistricts you can show your representative exactly how strongly a bill is supported in your community.
Send a clear signal on how you want your government to work.
Received and referred to the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions
Expressing support for the use of public-private partnerships to bring computer science education to more K–12 classrooms.
Whereas 9 in 10 parents want their child to study computer science, but only 40 percent of schools teach computer programming;
Whereas low-income students and students from small towns and rural communities are less likely to attend a school that offers computer science programming;
Whereas computing makes up two-thirds of all projected new jobs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields;
Whereas there are over 500,000 open computing jobs nationwide and such job openings are projected to grow at twice the rate of all other jobs;
Whereas significant workforce shortages in computing fields, particularly in cybersecurity, can pose significant threats to our national security; and
Whereas computing occupations are among the highest paying jobs for new graduates: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That the Congress expresses support for the use of public-private partnerships to bring computer science education to more K–12 classrooms throughout the country.
Passed the House of Representatives December 18, 2017.
