    Increasing Efforts to Create Computer Science Requirements in U.S. High Schools

    Posted by Cassie Peterson on Dec 29, 2014 12:08:22 PM

    According to, the U.S. will have 1 million more computer science jobs than students with computer science degrees by 2020. Careers in these fields are increasing at twice the national average, and in some states computing jobs are growing at over four times the average. Yet, many high schools around the country do not require computer science as a requirement for math or science.
