I see your but many students will end up using PHP for work. In my NYC college a good amount of people I graduated with are doing PHP, there's probably more PHP jobs between the coasts.

I think Lisp or Scheme is great for that kind of pedagogy, though the trend lately has been to use "practical" languages.
