I understand the confusion, as most educational institute seem to be only filtering, not educating.
I observe precisely the opposite. Starting with ethnically motivated enrollment quotas (an un-filter is better description) and then an array of micky-mouse courses to impart that feel-good aura. Finally, out in the job market where new hiring quotas cause relevant filtering (competence) to be avoided an prevent (even if unjustified) costly legal entanglements.

Tell her . . . Something like applying a foundation is not a complex science.
Well, aside from stealing her money by teaching beyond her capabilities, we can revisit the programming analogy. Learning to post on Farcebook doesn't make one computer savvy. Giving a diploma and telling someone they are is not at all helpful to them.

There's an implicit promise when teaching a curriculum: that the knowledge will be transferred in a usable manner - not just transferred.

Users vs. Builders. I can't be everything - and neither can anybody else.
