You mean there are STANDARDS?

Arizona's upping the stakes to be a teacher. GOOD. There are too many people who have gotten degrees out of Cracker Jack boxes teaching around the nation. I'm still reading Dumbing Down Our Kids, and it's really opened my eyes to how people with good intentions (I guess) have watered down our nation's education to do things to make students feel good about themselves - and have eliminated actual factual information. It's amazing... all the classes I've taken, and yet I'm supposed to make the kids feel fuzzy about the Great Depression. Dang new-age crap.
