Riley May Urge U.S. Teacher Licenses

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Education Secretary Richard Riley will reportedly propose a
national teacher licensing system to raise the bar on teacher quality. The
plan would also tie a teachers' pay to the certification, which could be
carried from state to state, USA Today reported in today's editions. Riley
said the department's proposals this year for the law governing most education
programs would include some way of making sure states adopt tougher, more-
relevant teacher exams. He cited a recent department survey of teachers
showing that many feel unprepared to teach specific subjects.
How would one get certified?
By passing tests on all kinds
of politically correct crap.
This is a dangerous idea.
