Well, that wouldn't be the first time an RSCDS certificated teacher taught something that contradicted the RSCDS manual...

It's particularly a problem with long-standing teachers who don't pay attention to updates to the standards. Not saying Jimmie did this, just saying it's a not-uncommon problem.
