Most high schools in the United States do not offer computer science classes. Yet the field is driving a major portion of the global economy.
Tech companies and educators are finding new ways to bridge the gap. One of these solutions, TEALS, is opening doors to new opportunities for students in Manson, Washington and across the country.
TEALS is a grassroots program, supported by Microsoft Philanthropies, that pairs computer science professionals with classroom educators to team-teach computer science in U.S. high schools. Over two years, classroom teachers gradually take over the responsibility of teaching the course on their own.
