going back to the tried and trusted apprentice system (basically interns starting with minimal but focused, initial education)?

I am working in an environment made of this kind of people with code wrote by people who knew nothing of information theory and system engineering.

Would you trust a surgeon who never studied but learnt from someone who knew? Would you trust an apprentice surgeon operating on you?
