    solution like paying the teachers more money so we can attract the best candidates to the field?

      If we accept the author's prescription of making education training tougher, the result will be fewer teachers of higher quality.  Either teacher pay will rise, to the detriment of state education budgets (higher taxes, y'all), or class sizes will increase further, which presumably means poorer results.

      Of course, the AEI will further propose, in other missives, privatizing education entirely so the market can exclude those that really don't deserve education in the first place.
