   Absolutely correct.  SPARK also has the virtue of newness.

Subject: Re: The question at hand:

   You can also make a good case for teaching SPARK:
   1) All the "good things" about Ada also apply (even more so)
      to SPARK.
   2) SPARK teaches design-by-contract and strong program verification.
   3) SPARK is _much_ smaller and simpler than Ada.
   4) You can sell the idea to your curriculum committee without
      mentioning Ada!
