In contrast, the elementary education sector has consistently found traditional educational methods to be superior to the newest, latest, and greatest methods.

Are you trying to say that he was doing something wrong? Did you even read the link that you posted? Besides, it's not as though he was shoving it down their throats. My school experience hasn't been anything like what you've suggested, and it seems like you're just regurgitating somebody else's false claims.
