According to a 2013 study by code.org, only 1 in 10 schools in the USA offer computer science courses.
With software engineers in high demand in the private sector, schools often cannot find instructors with a computer science background, and they struggle to compete with the compensation packages offered in industry. If you have a CS background, you can help change this by volunteering at a local high school!
TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools) helps high schools start and grow a sustainable Computer Science (CS) program and build CS teacher capacity by integrating professional software engineers into the classroom in a co-teaching model with an existing classroom teacher. Within 2 years, committed partner schools can independently sustain CS courses with curricula designed by UC Berkeley and University of Washington. For the 2015-2016 school year, TEALS is working with 5-7 high schools across Phoenix and AZ.
