This action item involves the creation of a new entity(umbrella organization or center)to provide several functions to promote computing education:

  1. It speaks with a united front, especially with regards to policy and funding
  2. It provides a clearinghouse or repository of ideas, policy recommendations, curricula, and other useful computing education information. A Computing Education Act of 2012 would come from here.
  3. It declares the Year of X (that is, annual Grand Challenge) that would be addressed by all participating organizations. Examples include diversity, perceived image of computing, industry/academia collaboration, etc.
  4. It bringslarge and small organizations together.
  5. It is ultimately accountable for computing education.
