I’ve been thinking hard about how to change things so that there are more women in computer science since I’ve been to Grace Hopper. One thing I see in my community, is that not all high schools offer computer science and that is something we need to change.
We need to start talking with principals and other administrative staff and convince them to teach computer science.
Until we do so, there won’t be openings for Computer Science teachers, and it won’t be taught. I know for a fact that in my district alone, less than half the high schools offer computer science.
