Even in industry, not all programmers are in favor of

As a side topic, back in about 1992, I used to work temporarily
part-time during the summer as a translator for a project
leader/programmer at CadWare, in New Haven, CT, and this person told
me that he actually preferred straight C to C++ because he found that
the object-orientedness of C++ made programs much more difficult to
trace in debugging when porting from one platform to another.

While I was at college, we never covered object-oriented languages. We
covered Scheme for Introduction to Computer Science as well as Data
Structures & Programming Techniques, Haskell for functional
programming, and C for Introduction to Systems Programming, but never
any object-oriented language.
