    thats such an easy question to answer, just about any reason you can think of is a valid answer.
    That topic seems simple in nature-are you in high school zach?

    Well... what kind of schools? High School? College?

    My short answer:

    If high school... then it teaches you how to use computers which you will have to use for just about everything in college. If in college, then it teaches you skills that you will need in the "real world" for your everyday work.

    Now... it goes back whether specific areas of Computer Science are important. Is it important to know the specific details of how computers work and the different architectures to send an email or use a word processor? How about writing a program?

    Computer science isn't important in schools. They teach you a load of **** which you then have to unlearn at uni. In fact most computing in schools is complete bollocks. Computing teachers are employed to teach you concepts and techniques which are 5 years out of date.

    Most teachers are *******s. You teacher is probably an ******* getting you to write a report with the bunch of arse topic of 'Why computer science is important to me'. I worked in a school for 3 years, teachers are twats = fact! You teacher is asking you this question to justify his/her miserable existance.

    Tell him his subject is as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike and he should drag his, no doubt, alcoholic ass down to the job centre if this is the best he can come up with.

    Please feel free to quote me in your essay.

    (My views may be skewed today due to being in a really bad mood).

    I'm with Aspman - may I offer another reason. The teacher had to write such a stupid topic while in school. So now you have to
