    it's equally likely that the teachers do not understand what they are teaching, and they are using the predefined curriculum as a crutch. if they were to update to a newer standard, they would have to re-learn what it took them many years to fake.

    Now ain't that the truth! I often wonder how many of these so called professors are actually programmers...

    As in.. If I sat one of them down with a problem that is not part of the curriculum ...
    Lets say the one I had last fall, converting music playlists in multiple unicode formats, from multiple platforms to .M3U utf8...
    Could they code a solution?

    I'd bet there are a significant number of them who could not.

    Some years ago I proposed a "report card for teachers" as part of new regulations in my province. The idea was that after each semester, high school students had a chance to anonymously grade their teacher's performance in the classroom... I still think it's a good idea, perhaps even moreso for university and college professors...

    Indeed it is. A past friend of mine had taught C# at a community college for a couple years, and he completely admitted this, and did _not_ consider himself a programmer (in fairness, he wasn't a professor either). He's the only professional programming teacher I've ever known, so I can't speak with much experience on the matter. But as of now... 1 out of 1, aren't programmers

    Maybe there's some truth to the old saying: "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach"... sad
