Teacher-education programs in our state are being eviscerated. Students are forced to take more and more education theory courses and reduce the number of content courses they take. The subject area that they will actually be teaching is treated like an impediment that has to be rushed through to get to the “really important” pedagogical theory stuff. Of course, there is no pedagogical theory. It’s all just vapid, useless blabber. Students will end up woefully underprepared to teach their actual subject and knowing little but the silly jargon that pleases the state bureaucracy.
