Programming Languages You'll Need Next Year (and Beyond)

Should programming be a required curriculum in public schools?
Not in the USA anyway. The current educational system is too flawed for this to be even a viable option. Not everyone is cut out to learn this type of skill.

I'd image those who are skilled mechanics can share the same sentiment about programming.

Should they upgrade? Of course they should. Do I like having to test and tweak my code to ensure IE6 compatibility? It's definitely not the highlight of my day... but if it helps the company in the long run then it's worth a little extra hassle on my part.
