Is teaching a technology, or is it more than that?

In this fair land there has long been a stratified interpretation of the purpose of education: which layer of the strata provides your perspective is unlikely to change, and it screens out the possibility that that there are other ways of viewing and interpreting the “how things should be”. The schools and the classes that we imagine are framed by our class, so to speak.
So, is the role of teachers to know stuff, and pass it on? To be able to do stuff, and implement it? Can we provide access to cultural capital when that itself is a site of conflict? Here is a view from someone who prepares the troops.
