Teaching is definitely a massively important profession, but he teaches ancient languages that are no longer in use. When you compare that to Kadohata's job as second officer aboard the Enterprise, it doesn't seem particularly crucial.
I definitely don't agree with that assessment. Why should the importance of Vicenzo's job depend on what he teaches? And honestly, I'd even argue that it's because he teaches ancient languages that his job's important... that way ancient languages and cultures, and the diversity of a civilization don't get lost.
Anyway, let's leave it at that. *g*
