Your serious comment brought my attention to this article which I would not have read otherwise. As an educator myself assigned the thankless task of transforming educational policy in a "transitional economy" I applaud your concern for accuracy and quality of publications.
It is crucial for educators, policy planners and all conscientious stakeholders in education to realize the effect that role models have on the "next generation." Unavoidably, we as policy makers are to some extent forced to select those characteristics we would like to see reflected in our future leaders. In many cases these are our children.
For this reason you are right to raise the alarm about quality and thoughtfulness in academic writings, especially when the "next generation" has the most to win or lose. Best practices should be "good" examples. During a transitional period we should ALL try harder, especially educators!
