similar story in uk
I was talking to an IT teacher the other day. They are not at all ready to teach programming. Scratch for year 9 is an aspiration. When I asked what other languages they planned to teach, she started asking if I'd like to come and talk to them. She didn't seem to have heard of Python even.
I suspect school IT has been a bit of a soft option all round, learning to use what are essentially consumer products.
