The problem is especially acute in the schools. Professors feel that they have to provide some direction. They can hardly convey
all of the stylistic options simultaneously, so they focus on a selected mode--in most schools it's Modern (but in some American schools it's Classical).

There will always be a few skeptical students (like this contrarian was as a student) who question conventional wisdom, and then faculty become defensive about what they are teaching, marshalling arguments to justify the choice of style. This becomes propgandistic and, in truth, brain washing--although in fairness most faculty are intellectually honest and genuinely committed to a certain stylistic direction.
