The job gap, growth opportunity, and gender gap are in computer science, not in STEM

So why isn't computer science taught in most high-school?

On a mildly related note, how many of the jobs classified as computer science related in these statistics would actually need a full computer science degree? It seems to me that most programming jobs can be done without having a computer science degree. Can we prepare programmers straight out of high school and waste less person-years and money on college?
