On June 23, 2018, the Star-Advertiser published an article about Gov. Ige signing a computer science education law that includes a $500,000 investment. The article quotes HawaiiKidsCAN Executive Director David Miyashiro:
The legislation was championed by high school students and a coalition that included DevLeague, Purple Mai‘a, Code.org, HawaiiKidsCAN, Oceanit and other organizations.
“Our kids want to be ready for the future,” said David Miyashiro, executive director of HawaiiKidsCAN. “Now they’ll have a better, and more fair, shot.”
