U.S. Senator Patty Murray paid a visit to Chief Sealth International High School on Nov. 1 to take a look at the work being done by students in the TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in School) Software Engineering program at the school.
The TEALS program is helping provide high-quality computer science education to students in public schools in Seattle and the state. The program itself isn't new, but Murray's interest is in the newly-passed Every Student Succeeds Act that she wrote with her Republican counterpart (the nation's new K-12 law) which provides new support for TEALS. Murray said, "it's quite impressive", as she took time to look at a series of student developed programs.
