Since court action has already been filed, I think the government should butt out now and wait for the court decision. As is now the situation seems ripe for some major "grandstanding" by both sides as both try to attain the higher "moral" ground. I will be keeping a barf bag handy.

And to boot that idea assumes the master's degree somehow makes them "better" teachers. I really have to wonder if that is supported by any facts at all. It's teacher attitude that helps drive student performance...not teacher aptitude. If I look back on my favorite teachers (that I think taught me the most) not a one had a master's degree.

Separating the Presidential Wheat from the Chaff

1 day ago
