Snapshot of six American high school teachers participating in Oracle Corporation's Academy program. Looks at teachers' backgrounds; level of familiarity with computer science; recruitment; experience learning the material; the benefits they believe they have received by being Oracle Academy teachers; financial implications to them. Related issues and challenges, including possible benefits to the school and the implications of commercialization in public education. Impact of IT curriculum on students is not addressed in any depth. There is little historical academic literature on this topic, which mostly tracks trends over the past thirty years, discussing computers as classroom tools. Does IT coursework engage students? Help them graduate from high school, continue on to college? What research would be helpful in understanding the impact of IT on students, teachers, schools, and eventually on the workforce and national economy?
