Is It Time to Cut Back on Study of Classic Analog Filters?

Cut back a little
I would say that it should be fine to cut back just a little, but not completely. I know that whatever new data that has been made readily accessible thus far is endless, but that doesn't mean that we can simply disregard the early discoveries. We can somehow make them work together cohesively if we want to depending on the requirements.

Filter design
 I would say it is not a case of one or the other, classic filter design teaching gives you the understanding of the technical aspects, which surely still applies with SAW and FBAW filters. And can you obtain AW filters which operate down to the lower frquency range which many people still use? i.e. can you get a SAW notch filter for 50/60Hz filtering?

Re: Classic Filter Design
The experts I know have been taught by themselves...

Classic Filter Design
My experience has been that most engineers with a BS degree do not have adequate training in filter design. Classic Filter design is usually taught as part of a graduate level class. Only through classic filter design can the engineer determine the order and type of the filter required to meet the system level requirements. 

I have encounter several so called experts who design their filters by using the optimization tools within RF circuit simulation programs.

There are signs that hand soldering of wires is seeing revived interest, but some of the how-to tutorial information out there is very incorrect.
This old-time, multi-transistor Sony TFM-6100W AM/FM radio may be an antique, but it provides a frame of reference to show how far radio technology and products have come in a few decades.
Cars are incorporating radar and other external-facing signal, and may soon have intervehicle data links; they may soon be the victims of deliberate jamming, thus requiring electronic countermeasures.
Reality check: Often what appears “on paper” to be a simple, trivial interconnect effort turns out to have real-world installation issues which require some extra time and attention, if not frustration.
