There are obvious immense benefits of Unicode but in recent years I
feel like I have hear more about the downside of using the Unicode
system as a tool developed from early era of computing before internet
became popular and the use of such system to digitalize the entire
world's text, than its benefit, especially in term of things like its
principle to unify different glyphs, artifacts caused by historical
decisions, among other things.

I often find mentions of Unicode in various online teaching materials and often in non Computing/IT subjects. But mentions are not sufficient to give students an appreciation and understanding of Unicode. Mentions do not convey the enormous benefits of Unicode.
