By next year our students will not ingest via any tape deck, and this will be a potential loss to their learning” From an educational perspective it is all focused towards students getting the job, and making that connection with an industry that wants trust and understanding. The biggest mistake educators can make is to not teach a difficult process because it might be unpopular.
