On June 27, 2013, the Computer Science Education Act was introduced into the US House by a group of bipartisan legislators. Please consider contacting your local House Rep urging him/her to support this bill. This is DEFINITELY worth your time and efforts. Among other things, this legislation would help K-12 teachers pay for summer workshops and allow those in collegiate institutions to offer them. Great on both sides!
