Hmmm. Possible. But I believe it is lot more mundane than that. Life goes on
whether they know something or not. So there is no real need to learn, much
less learn *after* a training program.

As has been mentioned more than once, the only driver for many people
-- teachers, students all-- if not a vast majority, is the certificate.

might have wished. -- Nietzsche
