US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan rails against “mediocre” schools of education

Jay Mathews reports in the Washington Post:

Education Secretary Arne Duncan, in prepared remarks circulating in advance of a speech Thursday, accuses many of the nation’s schools of education of doing “a mediocre job of preparing teachers for the realities of the 21st-century classroom.”

The full text of Duncan’s speech can be found here.

UPDATE: As expected, Sec. Duncan’s speech has elicited much reaction. Here are examples from Education Week, Inside Higher Ed, and Reuters.
