Poll shows computer science attitudes
from Minnesota Daily
A recent Gallup poll found that students, parents and teachers think boys are more likely to be interested in and successful at computer science than girls. What’s more, the poll also found that high school-aged girls share in that lowered confidence. Three-quarters of students between grades seven and 12 said they think boys are more interested than girls in learning computer science, according to the poll. And at the University of Minnesota, students say fewer women take higher-level classes in the field. In fall of 2014, only a few dozen female students were enrolled in the University's computer science program. During the same semester, about 340 male undergraduates studied alongside them.
