Blogger Amy Sullivan writes that, thanks to NCLB, father, an award-winning teacher of history with twenty-seven years of experience is not allowed to teach history anymore. Apparently, he majored in English, not History, so there you go.
I took one computer class in college, but I’m pretty proud of what I’ve built with technology at Beacon. I’m waiting for someone to tell me that I cannot teach technology anymore because I was an English major.
You know… with everything that needs fixing in public education today (small classes, small schools, anyone?), you would think that the government could make sure not to enact laws that make matters worse.
Unless of course, that’s what they want to do.
