There is a very strong intro to photo in my kids high school. I would love to have a darkroom as nice as theirs. I was talking to the instructor and he said it's easier for him to maintain the film program himself because he doesn't have to rely on the schools IT department to keep his computers running etc. He starts them off making pinhole cameras and then up to 35mm. After that class the kids can study digital photography but the school only has budgets for PS digi cameras and it's called digital media studies.
