We, the citizens of Palm Beach County, petition the school district to make an equally enriching education available to all students by instituting and developing Computer Science curricula in public elementary, middle, and high schools.

Currently, only one in ten schools nationwide offer the opportunity to study this increasingly important subject. The result: over the next decade, one million jobs will go unfilled in the field, and at a time when so much is being invested in order to improve education, the study of such a field cannot be ignored.

We urge the Palm Beach County School District to hire and train more teachers in the field of Computer Science, offer classes to students throughout their schooling, and create an incentive to study the subject by allowing it to count towards graduation requirements.
