Why?:  There will be 1,000,000 more computer science jobs than computer science students by 2020. http://code.org/stats 

Teachers will choose from a variety of resources and tutorials that expose students to foundational concepts of computer science. Computer programming allows students to practice perseverance, problem solving, and critical thinking.
