LXer: Programming is the new High School Diploma

Published at LXer:

It used to be there were four tiers of work in the United States. The first tier was for the truly uneducated: the illiterate. The second tier was for people who could be counted on to read and write and perform basic math: the high school graduates. Then there were folks who could be counted on to learn a lot more and take up positions of greater complexity: the college graduates. Finally there was a spot in the job market every so often for an expert. Newsflash: the second and third tier are going away. In it's place is a single tier: people who are literate and are able to control computers. And we're nowhere near ready for the changes coming. Programming is the new High School Diploma.
