A way to diversify tech? Treat computer class like math
from The San Francisco Chronicle
Backed by an all-star cast of Silicon Valley executives and nonprofit leaders, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom asked the University of California Academic Senate to count high school computer science classes as math classes instead of electives — a move supporters say could help to diversify the tech industry. Newsom's hope is that the shift will encourage California high schools — which frequently tailor their curriculum to reflect what the UC system requires — to beef up their computer science offerings.
