A brand-new Oracle Academy announced!

The Oracle Academy program has been highly lauded as a vehicle for teaching database concepts to High School students, in preparation for their college IT studies.

This article notes a new announcement by Oracle that they will combine Oracle Academy with Oracle's "Academic Initiative", a move intended to broaden the academic appeal of Oracle for High School students by offering a "wide range" (read "easy") of curricula for mediocre students:

"By selecting from the Academy's complete portfolio of software, hosted technology, faculty training, support, and certification resources, educators can provide a variety of training opportunities for a broad array of students."

The problem Oracle Academy with most academic professors is the vendor-bias of Oracle.  Many of the top U.S. Universities do not believe that there is a place in academia for "trade school" learning, and that learning to use a specific software package is the purview of vocational schools.

However, using Oracle as the vehicle for a rigorous Business school course in database management exposes students to the leading RDBMS product while allowing them to get valuable hands-on experience. 

"Additionally, under the new Oracle Academy program, faculty would be able to flexibly insert resources into computer science and business programs, ensuring that students gain industry-relevant skills prior to entering the workforce, the company noted."

Under the guidelines of the AACSB (the only recognized accrediting body for collegiate business schools), courses in database management may include vendor-specific tools, but the focus must be on the conceptual foundations of database management.
