CSNYC was founded in 2013 to ensure that all of New York City’s 1.1 million public school students have access to a high-quality computer science education that puts them on pathway to college and career success. In just two years, CSNYC funded programs have reached more than 100 schools and 10,000 students. This is simply not enough.
This week we announced a partnership with The City of New York, the Fund for Public Schools, Robin Hood Foundation and the AOL Charitable Foundation to provide access to computer science education to every child and every school in this system in the next 10 years. This effort, called Computer Science For All, will train 4,775 teachers over 10 years, placing CS educators in every single school. The initiative is about opportunity and equity, and it’s something that we absolutely must do for our City’s children. Computer Science For All is the country’s most ambitious and far-reaching technology education effort to date.
