On a higher level other people have mentioned I am not sure you are doing your students favors by teaching them C++(except if you want to show them how low language primitives like arrays and malloc can be wrapped in nicer higher level language).
Nobody can predict the future, but I would consider teaching them Rust.

Rust is stricter on memory allocations but again it doesn't magically fix all problems.
Nobody claimed it did. You don't have to "fix all problems" to fix
*some* problems.

Rust is not compatible with other languages
I don't know what you mean by that. Rust speaks C, just like most languages.

You don't have to like Rust, but spreading easily-debunked FUD about
it isn't helping anyone.
