Despite all the computer equipment and software that companies have donated to schools over the past 20 years, students are still advancing through the grades and graduating with inadequate technical skills - technical in this case being a synonym for "computing." The way things are going this will only get worse. The job market demands more skills and sophistication, while at the same time school budgets are shrinking.
