Re: “The New Teacher Certification Rules: Is Everyone Else Wrong, or Am I?

you are spot on. the relevant word is "or."
What's deeply disturbing to me is that there is no regard for the the fact that teachers need to be skilled in education, not only their subject matter expertise.

Re: “The New Teacher Certification Rules: Is Everyone Else Wrong, or Am I?

Anything that breaks the stranglehold of the union/educational establishment and associated group think can't be too bad. From what I've seen an educational degree doesn't do much to make you a better teacher than other relevant life experience and/or education.
I wonder what the criteria are for firing them (or any teacher) if they're found to be incompetent?

It's a common sense law. That in itself explains why libby Safier is against it.

We need teachers with real world experience, not professional teachers. This is especially true at the high school level.
