I am a computer science professor, a discipline that loves to “disrupt.” Yet many companies and tech CEOs support these schools, monetarily and through public statements of support. These schools are the opposite of disruptive and do not teach students the learning skills we need them to have. There are more tech jobs than qualified graduates each year. And we need well prepared students.
Submissive students do not make good computer scientists. We need problem solvers who think outside the box and move technology forward. We especially need such skills from outside our existing very white community to drive tech forward in a more inclusive, useful way.
