Barrak Obama and Arne Duncan continue their assault on teachers.

Now they plan to drive out of business schools
that send their teacher graduates to urban districts where test scores will be
low and gains slow to come by.
From Politico: The goal: To ensure that every state evaluates its teacher
education programs by several key metrics, such as how many graduates land
teaching jobs, how long they stay in the profession and whether they boost
their students’ scores on standardized tests. The administration will then
steer financial aid, including nearly $100 million a year in federal grants to
aspiring teachers, to those programs that score the highest. The rest, Duncan
said, will need to improve or “go out of business.”
Are some teacher colleges better than
others? Undoubtedly but thanks to the president and secretary of playing
basketball with the president, we will need all the teachers we can get in the
next few years.  These two have done all
they can to handicap the teaching profession with their corporate/standardized test
reforms.
They are despicable. We can’t chalk it
up to them just being ignorant anymore. Their reforms represent a calculated
attack against the teaching profession.
I also can’t help but think there
favorite group TFA which does the exact opposite of what we know to be good and
puts their non-education majors through a five week class is going to get a
pass. The summer institute is not a teacher college after all.
