This is kind of cool: A high school for troubled teens in Ohio is offering courses in videogames to their students. The high-schoolers won't be sitting in class playing Super Monkeyball. The courses will focus "largely on the elements of video game creation, from concept to finished product."
Had they had that program when I was in high school, I might not have ended up in Juvie.
