What will the new Science and Tech High School & Middle School do with its software elements?

"The real shock is that the academic programming language community continues to reject the sea change in programming practices brought about by scripting. Enamored of the object-oriented paradigm, especially in the undergraduate curriculum, unwilling to accept the LAMP (Linux-Apache-MySQL-Perl/Python/Php) tool set, and firmly believing that more programming theory leads to better programming practice, the academics seem blind to the facts on the ground."
I say, the school needs to use Open Source Software and that's that. Any other move is a tragic mistake.
