Funding Information:
The initiative could be seen as the culmination of earlier work on CS education supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the CS Principles course launched by the College Board,7 the extensive work of the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA),8 and efforts by ACM, by, and by many others. Within ACM, the efforts included work on policy matters by the Education Policy Committee, harnessing the invaluable support of major industrial players through Computing in the Core (which has now merged with the Advocacy Coalition), lobbying on Capitol Hill, as well as actions from groups with members in the ACM Education Council.
