Lesson 3 - stackoverflow
There is no lesson 4
TEACHER: "Okay class, today's lesson is SHITPOSTING ON REDDIT. Our three objectives for today are:
1. Knowing no programming whatsoever
2. Having a Reddit account username containing an old programming joke everyone's heard a million times
3. REAP THE KARMA from /r/ProgrammerHumor"
-The teacher writes the lesson and objectives on the whiteboard.-
STUDENT 1: "Mr. <redacted>, what type of content should we be posting?"
-Roughly 20 minutes pass.-
STUDENT 2: "Is this good, sir?"
-Student 2 posted a class joke-

ilPinguino305672d@infernalempress I think I'd actually watch a sitcom with this kind of script.
Hm... I'd even volunteer to play a role in a sitcom like that (although my last real "acting" experience was the theatre club at school).
I like your style.
Still, the point of CS ed shouldn't be to push people into CS (I mean, PE isn't there to make kids into athletes, right?). It should teach them the basics, making sure they can run their system, safely administrate their home network, maintain a safe online life (or decide on whether they even want that) and MAYBE some basic coding to automate stuff.
Anything beyond that is professional's work, those who want to be that should dedicate the right amount of time to it.
There's no shame in the skilled trades - and hell, there's a load of cash in them because they're desperate for new people (at least where I live)!
Adam Smith was right I guess.
M1sf3t414871d@infernalempress its what they do, look at the influx of college students after the millennia in general. Parents didn't pay close enough attention, teachers thought it seemed like a good idea, and the kids didn't give a fuck. So what do you end up with? 100% graduataion rate straight into debt they can't pay. Name whatever reason you want, bullshit courses, flooded job market, etc. etc. The root cause was too many students got pushed in and not enough professors wanted to risk their jobs by failing have the class. Now the ones worthy of being paid can't get what they deserve because some idiot is working for a lot less because even though he was only a few points lower, he can't seem to hold down a job anywhere with anything he supposedly learned.
M1sf3t414871dThat being said, I missed the computer science program by one year. Had I someone made me sit down and fuck with a cli long enough to learn the basics, writing probably wouldn't have been my major and I prob wouldn't have dropped out so many time from lack of interest
