Read This Now - We Need Good Teachers

It isn't a news flash or revelation that the US education system is lagging behind much of the rest of the developed world.  Or that we really need to do something about it if we want to remain one of the world's leading economies.

Matt Miller has a brief piece in the WaPo today on the need for recruiting and supporting better teachers and the need to work with teachers unions to make this happen...

We're the only leading nation that thinks it can stay a leading nation with a "strategy" of recruiting mediocre students and praying they'll prove excellent teachers. 
It's a quick read and some of the points are old ones but they're all good ones nonetheless and worth remembering.
