North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper joins national bipartisan effort to expand access to computer science

Yesterday, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper announced his plan to join the bipartisan Governors’ Partnership for K-12 Computer Science.

The Governors’ Partnership for K-12 Computer Science — chaired by Gov. Asa Hutchinson (AR) and Gov. Jay Inslee (WA) — is a bipartisan group of state leaders committed to expanding access to, and increasing equity in K-12 computer science education. He joins 16 governors who have all committed to develop rigorous K-12 computer science standards, fund professional learning for K-12 computer science teachers, and put computer science in every high school in their state.

Through his participation in the Partnership, Governor Cooper is helping ensure every North Carolina student has access to the skills and training they need to be ready for college and career. “We need to provide more students with opportunities to develop computer science skills so that they graduate ready for the jobs of today and tomorrow,” he said.
