So, one of:

– the teaching is bad;
– the learner is not up to it; or
– both.

Science, in and of itself, cannot be dodgy.

Yes there are debates to be had, cf. Popper, Kuhn, etc. but the
foundation of science is hypotheses, experimentation, and
reproducibility. It can be done badly or well by people, but it is not
a dodgy thing.

Perhaps you do not, but Rust, like Go, is getting traction in the world
out there. Like COBOL, C will always be there, but its use will
diminish rapidly.
