California Needs More Computer Science Students
Several tech industry leaders have contacted the Governor of California to try to boost Computer Science Education across the board in California. Right now there are approximately 70,000 Open Computer Science Jobs in California. Based on the current estimates of students in that state taking Computer Science, this is about 16 jobs for every Computer Science Student in California.
To help meet the needs, executives from Microsoft, Salesforce, Netflix, Twitter, and Google want the State of California to increase Computer Science Education in all grades from K through 12.
