Submission + - Chicago Schools: US IT Jobs Offshored Because "We Weren't Making Our Own" Coders

theodp writes: In a slick new video (YouTube), segments of which were apparently filmed looking out from Google's Chicago HQ giving it a nice high-tech vibe, Chicago Public Schools CS4ALL staffers not-too-surprisingly argue that creating technology is "a power that everyone needs to have." In the video, the Director of Computer Science and IT Education for the nation's third largest school district offers a take on why U.S. IT jobs were offshored that jibes nicely with the city's new computer science high school graduation requirement. From the transcript: "People still talk about it's all offshored, it's all in India and you know, there are some things that are there but they don't even realize some of the reasons that they went there in the first place is because we weren't making our own."
