H.Con.Res.95 – Expressing support for the use of public-private partnerships to bring computer science education to more K-12 classrooms.

Brief

HCR 95 expresses support for the use of public-private partnerships to bring computer science education to more K–12 classrooms nationwide

CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

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;

Whereas computing occupations are among the highest paying jobs for new graduates; and

Whereas, by 2020, there will be 1,400,000 computer-science-related jobs available, but only about 400,000 computer science graduates who will have the skills necessary to apply for those jobs: 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.
