CSforSome to CSforAll: Story of the Unsung Heroes

Description:

As more schools adopt computer science education, we risk widening existing gaps in access and opportunity for our underrepresented students. The CSforAll Consortium has collected stories of the unsung heroes across the US, fighting to bring CS education to their students. From the opioid epidemic in rural areas, to communities without internet, to lack of resources for students with accessibility needs, listen to real-life challenges school leaders face, and how they are overcoming them.
