I have to agree. I, personally, would not trust parents (as a group) with the job of approving education curricula or methodologies without some type of appropriate outcomes measurements (i.e., standardized tests). Given the backlashes to both No Child Left Behind and Common Core (not to imply that either program is the be-all, end-all it claims to be), and the difficulty in finding one or more enlightened despots to determine appropriate standards, I'm at a loss here.

But I do think university courses are too heavily focused on theory, and not enough practical application.

If you don't want to be a computer scientist (or, at least, educated in computer science), don't go for a computer science degree. If you want to be trained to be a programmer, find an institution that will train you to be a programmer - it may not be a university.
