School education can't give students all of the skills
and languages for future job. Most skills should be
learned during real work experience. My opinion is
that school education teaches students the idea on how
to use those languages and skills in a systematic way,
not only remember the syntax. For those schools
adopting Ada as a foundation language, the purpose is
not only to teach students Ada has different syntax
from C++.

So Rational Rose and UML would be an excellent class
for school education. I learned and used them in
several of my classes. But from my point, I like to
learn WebSphere/Weblogic/IPlanet during my job, not
school education.
