If employers genuinely wanted to make a difference to the quality and nature of the education their prospective employees receive then it would actually be quite easy.
An interview would go something like this:
Interviewer: Hi Miss Jones, well, thanks for coming.
Interviewee: My pleasure.
Interviewer: I see from your CV that you were a straight A student at school. Well done.
Interviewee: Thank you.
Interviewer: Tell me, what sort of pedagogy did you receive?
Interviewee: I'm sorry?

Interviewee: That's right.
Interviewer: What else have you got?
Interviewer: Thank you. We'll let you know. Next!
