MS student survey identifies lack of IT education, soft skills
Margaret Evered, a CIPS consultant and member, said that computer classes should be mandatory for all students at as many levels of high school as possible. "There will be a huge divide. The (people who don't know how to use computers) will be the illiterates of tomorrow," she said.
A more comprehensive digital media studies class might draw in more students, said Fiume. These types of computing, along with other industry-specific options (like biotechnology, graphic design, or nanotechnology, for example), are often unknown to guidance counselors, who don't stream students -- especially girls -- into IT, according to Evered.
