At Bharatiya Vidya Mandir school at Kochi, we started on BASIC in the
5th std. It was CBSE.

Engineering First+Second Sem at CUSAT, it same thing BASIC .. after
two years of C++ at school.

Makes you wonder who the hell makes these things. So my opinion is,
schools can and do change depending on how good the teachers/principal
are. But whats really bad are the universities, where its not so easy.
