    This seems to be the New Hot Thing : school, college, university should teach you a job.

    That's mere utilitarism at best, stupidity most probably. You go to university to get a culture and learn thinking. Hey, if you want to learn a job at school, be a mechanic, a plumber, or even a lawyer ! By the way, all three pay much better than computer programming or whatever job you won't learn at school anyway.
