Schools have enough problem teaching STEM.  Teachers are too busy teaching opinions.

Re: Basic education
I agree with the fact that this should now be taught in schools. However every security framework (from COBIT to NIST to PCI to ISO) includes security education and awareness. It's our responsibility as security professionals to make sure that this doesn't get buried in the everyday BAU or the "Sexy" side of Security.
