Geordi probably skipped class when they talked about Scotty...same as he skipped class when they talked about how to eject the warp core.

Maybe.

Then again ST: Generations made the whole, damned, TNG crew look incompetent.
It wasn't just Generations...it was a pattern that developed throughout the show. Every one of the many times that the ship was threatened with a warp core breach, they either never mentioned ejecting it, or gave some vague excuse as to why it couldn't be done. They put a safety system in there and then constantly make excuses why it won't work. So it became my humorous contention that Geordi was hiding the fact that he never learned how to eject the warp core.
