Students shun computer science for no good reason?

I had the opportunity to visit a couple of universities recently, and a recurring topic of conversation was the falling numbers of enrolment in CS programs. Along the same theme, PC magazine reports :
A report released June 7 by the Computer Science Teachers Association Curriculum Improvement Taskforce criticized U.S. high schools for not uniformly requiring students to take computer science classes. ... The report states that the lack of focus in the United States on computer science education is "disastrous and shortsighted," in light of an anticipated shortage of qualified candidates for the 1.5 million computer and IT jobs expected by 2012.

Apparently, "an increasing number of students believe that there are few rewarding or varied high-tech career opportunities, a perception based on media reporting and not marketplace realities".
