enrolling in programming courses because "you want to become a programmer" really isn't a particularly good filter. No more than enrolling in a music class will make you a millionaire rock musician (or avoiding them for rap); no more than enrolling in a gym class will make one an Olympic contender.
A teacher is not paid to filter, but to educate. Not to create the best, but to transfer the basics.

I understand the confusion, as most educational institute seem to be only filtering, not educating.

Want to and able to, having no true cause-and-effect relationship (in either direction) is where the problem lies. Where I work, one of the employees went to classes to become a makeup artist. On a good day she looks like a geisha who applied her makeup with boxing gloves.
Tell her to find someone who can transfer basic knowledge. She might not be talented enough to use make up to look like something from the "Alien" movies, but that ain't the goal. Something like applying a foundation is not a complex science.
