What does Stanford-educated Rachel Teagle have against ordinary kids?

The new director of the San Diego Children's Museum wants to switch the focus of the museum from kids to art. Have you ever been to a party where everyone is talking about art? Apparently Rachel Teagle wants to create the elementary school version of that kind of party, and is adamant that Dora the Explorer not be invited.

My suspicion is that Ms. Teagle spent too many years at the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art, and now that she has two babies, she has convinced herself that what the world needs is for her to continue what she's been doing, and pretend that it's exactly what young children need.
