Google's survey highlights demographic inequalities in K-12 computer-science education. Research from Google and Gallup has found that black students are less likely to have access to computer-science classes at school and are less likely to use a computer at home or school, despite being more interested in learning about the subject than their white counterparts. The findings, based on a survey of 16,000 students, parents, teachers, principals and superintendents, highlight demographic inequalities in K-12 computer-science education. Just 47 percent of black students say they have dedicated computer-science classes, compared with 58 percent of white students and 59 percent of Hispanic students. White students also have greater access to computers than Hispanic and black students.
