New Teachers from New Sources

Abstract

[Washington Times] As the Senate inches toward closure on the education overhaul bill set in motion by President Bush's proposals, Republicans and Democrats have sidestepped a critical issue - getting more and better teachers into the classroom.
The debates over testing, vouchers and state vs. federal control have overshadowed the need to remedy the national teacher shortage and to improve teacher quality. Unless both sides of this dilemma get immediate attention, the likely payoff for other educational reforms in the bill will be greatly diminished.
