Submission + - Should universities offer Cobol classes? (

dcblogs writes: Only about one in four schools offer Cobol classes, and then mostly as an elective, according to a recent survey by Micro Focus. For most students, this means the odds are high that they will attend a school that does not offer Cobol. There are strong opinions about this trend. "I think there are a lot of people who want to put a stake in its heart and kill it and I don't know why," said David Dischiave, an associate professor at the Syracuse University School of Information Studies. Syracuse has two required Cobol courses. But other schools says the demand for Cobol doesn't justify offering a class.
