The idea is to move on to the "candy" languages after you fully understand pointers.

The idea is to master "pointers", get a feel for some of the most difficult concepts early.

When I went to school the professors were very strict when they taught statics and dynamics for the engineers; the idea was to separate the "wheat from the chaff", early in the program. For example, my younger brother said he got a "D" on his first 4 week exam, because he forgot the -> vector symbols on his equations, even though every answer was correct with all the work shown.

The idea is to let the student determine if the subject matter is right for them very early on, so they don't make too much of an investment and bail later than they could have.
