Universities Struggling for Computer Science Teachers

from the the-lure-of-dot-com-stock-options-is-still-strong dept

Many colleges and universities are having a difficult time finding and keeping computer science faculty members. Not surprisingly many of them are off working at dot coms hoping to become stock market millionaires. I think it might make sense for universities to try to work out deals with some industry people to allow them to work at a dot com and teach part time. I realize there are some time issues there, but it would also give students more access to what’s really going on out in the programming world.
