What is wrong with this picture ?

I see both of you willing to mandate the teaching of C and yet not
mandate the teaching of any of Ada, Pascal, PL/I etc.

Makes sense to me. what is the point of teaching dead languages like Ada, Pascal, and PL/I? Teach C, Assembler, and Java/C# (for the mainstream), and some lisp variant (Scheme, ML, Haskell) and Prolog variant for variety. But Ada, Pascal, and PL/I are suitable only for a "history of programming languages" course :)
