State of CS numbers in Montana

I learned something interesting this Monday. The Montana Office of Public Instruction stats say of the 140 some odd schools in Montana, 6 offer a programming course. Next year the number will be 5 because one of the teachers is retiring and there is no replacement. Now I admit Montana is not at the cutting edge of CS education but I have a feeling we are not alone in that ratio or in the shortage of CS teachers.
