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.
How recently was your education experience? Smile | :)

Schools simply seem to filter based on who has "some" knowledge, instead of transferring basics. And yes, industry cannot rely on those false promises that schools give, so we have to test the candidate's knowledge on the subject again.

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.
No, but it does sell student-loans and "good feelings" Big Grin | :-D

There's an implicit promise when teaching a curriculum: that the knowledge will be transferred in a usable manner - not just transferred.
Someone teaching a curriculum has no incentive to do so Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:

He/she just needs to deliver what the curriculum promised, in one form or the other, in order to claim money. Students seem to accept it, as long as they get their paper claiming they have said knowledge.
