Please PLEDGE on CS Ed Week!

Next week is the third annual Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10).

But there’s still time to pledge your principled support for CSEdWeek (no $$ required), and it takes less than a minute to do so:  Think about asking your colleagues to pledge, or even your students (who might be involved in outreach, roadshows, visits to schools, etc.) to pledge.

Why does it matter? It’s crucial that policy makers and the general public see there is grass-roots support for computer science education.  Your pledge helps demonstrate that support.  Larger numbers helps.

If you’re participating in some activity in support of CSEdWeek’s mission, please take the second step in pledging and tell us about it.  It doesn’t even have to happen next week. You can pledge anything you’re doing any time to promote computing or support computer science education.

And, if you only have five minutes, here are some ideas on how you can turn those five minutes into support for K-12 computer science education:

Thanks in advance for your pledge … it’s important for the future of CS Ed, especially at the level of public policy.
