“Why do I need to learn this?” is a question students have asked down through the generations. What’s the relevance of math, English, history, biology, or anything else to their future?

Today it seems like that question is more relevant than ever. The job market is tougher than ever, yet there are hundreds of thousands of tech positions open and awaiting qualified candidates.
