There are two types of students in the California Bay Area. There are the kids who want to do something to change the world, and then there are the kids that claim that they want to do something to change the world, but actually sit around, wasting their very valuable and potential-full time. Those kids that truly want to change the world are those who do. They are the ones that will learn what they need to know to make their mark on the world.
Today, the unemployment rate is 6.6%. Today, in public education, we prepare students to become doctors, mathematicians, writers, and historians. Today, we see that in 2018, computer engineers will hold 51% of the job market, whereas physicians will hold 13%. Is our public education pointing students in the correct direction?
Remember those kids. The ones that truly want to do something to change the world. Help them do so by opening their eyes to computer science. Preparing students for college is a good thing; preparing students for the rest of their lives is a great thing.
