Actually , I think that everything that's worth learning in a typical education program could be put in a thin book. If you're going to teach K - 7 math you should major in child psychology and minor in math. If you are going to teach 8-12 you should major in math. And, of course, everyone should read the thin book. I've also been advocating that all adminstrators have advanced degrees in an academic area. (no admin. or PE degrees). Most schools (60%) are run by coaches who probably didn't even like school.
