Peruvian law requires that prospective school teachers be graduates of institutions which focus on preparing them into the pedagogical aspects of teaching. Unfortunately in the area of computing we believe that the prospective teachers do not receive enough subject specific training. In addition, the legal requirement means that CS graduates, without teaching qualifications, are disadvantaged if they attempt to become teachers. The result is that computer science education in high schools has become sterile and uninteresting. We provide an analysis of the academic status of these future teachers, with recommendations geared towards academic and curricular change in this area.
