Au contraire! I'd say that makes it all the more relevant to the point. Here's a perfect opportunity to teach these students how to deal with unexpected situations. In the real world, the data you get will be full of errors and you'll have to be able to clean it up. You might have a database that's very old and has been maintained by multiple people. The first person may have preferred 0/1 for true/false, the next person might have used yes/no, etc. You will rarely have nice clean scrubbed data like you get from textbooks and sometimes even there you'll run into unexpected and/or peculiar behavior between versions. So here's your chance to go beyond the textbook and teach these kinds how to deal with a simple unexpected situation.
Frankly, I'd think any good educator would have seized on this opportunity already, though with the way teachers are made into scapegoats for virtually everything these days and school budgets have cut so deep into the bone they've practically nothing left, I wouldn't blame you if you've developed kind of PTSD.
View this as the opportunity it is, not a problem. The one thing I had to teach myself pretty much all the way through school was critical thinking. All the way through college, the classes were great at giving me the facts, but not so much at teaching me how to use those facts. So here's your chance to help rectify that problem with one group of students. It's not much, granted, but it is what you as an individual can do to help make the world a slightly better place and give this group of students (along with others who may follow) a small edge over everyone else when trying to find a job. If you plan the seed of how to think critically and logically work through and/or around problems that come up, it's something that can be applied to virtually any other area of life.
