Computer Science Majors and a field of studyEdit

Computer Science is an established discipline at the undergraduate and graduate college levels. However, educators and Computer Science professionals are concerned that K-12 students lack the opportunity to become well prepared to pursue an expertise in this area at the college level.

This has contributed to the existing shortage of expertise in Computer Science related careers. In an article published in the Washington Post, Bill Gates, Chairman of Microsoft Corporation, stated that "Computer Science employment is growing by nearly 100,000 jobs annually. But at the same time studies show that there is a dramatic decline in the number of students graduating with Computer Science degrees" (How to Keep America Competitive; Washingtonpost.com).

Computer science education in K-12 schools is an area of increasing interest and concern to educators as well as to Computer Science professionals.
