How do "Educators" know?

|Lee says, "it's out of step with what educators know is best for kids"? "Educators" ears must be attuned to hear what comes out of the mouth of God.|
The article does nothing more, or less, than present is a well-executed analysis of what is taught in principal-prep courses. The analysis shows that the substance is out of touch with what is going on in the world today and heavily ideologically loaded on the side of romanticism. Few; in or out of the profession, would argue that this is wise. If you doubt that, ask around. I've never encountered any principals who felt that they were well-prepped for the job.
Were this restricted to principals, it would be one thing. But analyzes of what teachers are taught and their view of the adequacy of their prep are in the same vein. Go figure.
