According to the Computer Science Teachers Association, the number of U.S. high schools offering introductory computer science dropped to 69% in 2011 from 78% in 2005. While a manpower survey reports that 52 percent of U.S. companies had trouble filling essential positions; the study supports statistics from the U.S. Labor Department showing that more than three million tech jobs remain unfilled for months. These hard-to-fill positions tend to be in Internet technology, machine operation, and engineering fields, though nursing and accounting also top the list.
