Why aren't we taught it as "窓です” in <<proper kanji>>?

They think 窓 is too intimidating for us when really this is the perfect time to start picking up basic kanji. The developers think if they didn't teach it as まど though then people would be confused.

Acceptance of kanji in the course has certainly improved, but it's a very large task.

Because that would just be 窓, not 窓です.
です ≈ to be.
