ON January 30, 2016, President Obama announced the "Computer Science For All" initiative to expand K-12 computer science education in the United States: 4 billion to prepare teachers, expanding access to materials, and building effective partnerships. The goal of this initiative is: "to empower all American students from kindergarten through high school to learn computer science and be equipped with the computational thinking skills they need to be creators in the digital economy, not just consumers, and to be active citizens in our technology-driven world. Our economy is rapidly shifting, and both educators and business leaders are increasingly recognizing that computer science (CS) is a "new basic" skill necessary for economic opportunity and social mobility.
