Study: Computer science not offered in schools because of cost
According to a new Gallup research study, "Searching for Computer Science: Access and Barriers in U.S. K-12 Education", while students, parents and teachers value computer science, administrators don't necessarily perceive that they do. The study reports that less than half of administrators say school board members think computer science education is important. Principals and superintendents cite a lack of time devoted to courses that are directly tied to testing requirements, according to Gallup. They also say that a low availability and budget for computer science teachers is another reason schools don't offer computer science courses.
