spacecoast,

This actually proves my point. The state has no interest in ensuring that you are well-prepared to save your own life or the lives of people you love, so the state minimum requirements don't do much toward that end.

However, good instructors do care about their students, and thus often bootleg a little extra information or training to their classes. That's why you know your class was "better than the minimum required."

This is a good thing and a fairly common one (and bless the instructors of whom it may be said!). But it's not the state's fault that your instructor did more than the state required. That extra instruction was incidental, not by legal design.
