Git should be thaught in schools. It's such a basic skill in this modern world and not just for coding! For almost any kind of projects, like writing theses.
I'd argue that teaching them git specifically will lead to MS-Office sorts of learning by rote. Ideally they should be exposed to a few different DVCS implementations like fossil, darcs, mercurial, and bazaar so they can get more familiar with the concept of several people being able to work on the same thing asynchronously without needing teamviewer/google drive.
@architect agree. It's crazy kids learn how to use MS Office at school, but nothing about version control - at least in my country. I just can't imagine anything better than git.
