Obviously in accordance with the "no child left behind" initiative, public schools who have cut-back on food and superfluous amenities such as music and literature, public institutions can now fork-over $2,000.000 to get an Oracle database curriculum for their high school students desiring training in database management.  For only $3,000.00, Oracle will provide a Java curriculum too.
According to the Oracle Academy web site:
The participation fee includes teacher professional development, lesson by lesson curriculum and materials, online development and learning environments, support and much more.  The following
