I wasn't disagreeing. I've been appalled at what walks in the door trying to get a programming job.
Unfortunately, some students go through a program with the goal of getting the piece of paper at the end, without any hint of learning anything. I remember people in engineering (and in computer science) cramming for tests, getting a passing grade, and then promptly forgetting the material.
I suspect that many of them don't believe that the information serves any purpose other than giving them something to be tested over.
Not being able to answer simple questions about data structures isn't all. Inability to decompose even a simple problem. No ideas of how to troubleshoot. Inability to write a simple loop in the language they are applying for. And those are the ones who claim to be senior developers.
