[Neil Goodman] "Since films are mostly cut on Avid (and a little on premiere i guess) why on earth would you intro FCPX into the curriculum?"

You got to figure that at the start of X, schools were coming off of a growing FCP7 presence. So, in spite of misgivings, many believed in Apple's sales pitch. Apple has a very solid education presence, so there's also a logical path from high school to college. Hence, you see a lot of FCPX in these circles and there's nothing wrong with that. Let students make up their own mind.

However, if you are training for specific job skills, like cutting or mixing feature films, then the weight shifts to Media Composer and Pro Tools. Since in 7 years, FCPX (and for that matter Logic Pro X) hasn't taken the film world by storm, the traditional choices are still the safer bit.
