  •  Today's NYT EDITORIAL (3+ / 0-)

    I hope some of you saw the Jal Mehta editorial about school management and teacher requirements. I would certainly support much more standardization of teacher training, requiring more advanced degrees. Teachers should be a more respected profession and essentially self governing-- then there would be no need for authoritarian management.

    •  there is lots wrong with that OP-ed (4+ / 0-)

      it is NOT a Times editorial.  It is Mehta promoting his book.

      And much of what he says is inaccurate

      There has been an extensive discussion of it on diane ravitch's blog

      for what it's worth, Mehta has no experience with public schools personally, having gone to a prep school and never having taught
