ask slashdot: What were you taught about computers in High School?

An anonymous reader writes "What /was/ taught to you about computers in High School? Computer use and computer science in schools are regular headlines, but what "normal" do we compare it to?

It's not a shared reference. A special class with Commodore PETs was set up just /after/ I graduated, and I'm only starting to grey. Everybody younger has had progressive levels of exposure. What was "normal" for our 40, 30, and 20 year olds here? And how well did it work for you, and your classmates?"
