Computer Literacy and Societal Impact of Computers: Education and Manpower.
Hamblen, John W.
The use of computers in education and general society is continually expanding, but the growing need for highly educated computer technologists will continue unless universities take major steps toward the reallocation of their resources in favor of the burgeoning computer science departments, and government and industry provide a significant increase in graduate fellowships and other types of graduate student support. Computer training in the high schools may soon become available to the extent that clerks are prepared to become effective transaction terminal and data entry operators. However, few high schools can or should provide sufficient training for entry-level personnel in the computer center for operations, programming, or systems analysis, which should be provided by postsecondary institutions.
