    Wisconsin continues commitment to stupidity

    U.S. Department of Education Releases Results of State Plans for Highly Qualified Teachers in Every Classroom

    http://www.ed.gov/news/pressreleases/2006/08/08162006a.html

    "four states did not address any of the six requirements. For these four states—Hawaii, Missouri, Utah and Wisconsin..."

    Of course missoura is one of the four worst as well.

    Re: Wisconsin continues commitment to stupidity

    Here's the part that Wisconsin will choke on: Requiring that teachers...

    demonstrate knowledge in the core academic subjects they teach
    A few years back, there was a Teachers strike in Madison.
    The City wanted teachers to take competancy tests in their subjects, the teachers - obviously - didn't.
    The city was hinging their raises on that...the teachers struck...the city caved.

    I, for one, have ALWAYS been a proponent of competancy tests for teachers.
    After all, I don't want a history major teaching calculus to my kids.
    I've always believed that you can't teach what you don't know...even if your book has all the answers in the back.

    I am less than enamored of the Wisconsin Public School system...not so much in the grade schools, but middle school and high schools.
    I seriously hope that the Feds kick them in the nards and force them to take competancy tests...any teachers out there, there will soon be job openings in Wisconsin.

    NOTE:
    There are good teachers as well as bad.
    Obviously, if you're a teacher and you know your subject matter and can inspire and enrich your students, this isn't directed at you.
    If, however, you're another of the "coasters" I've had dealings with in the education process of my oldest two daughters...I have NO sympathy for you.

    I work in education but I'll pass on moving to wisconsin just because I know there will be work.
    Sharing knowledge those children?
    It would be worth my time about as much as giving swimming lessons to someone with no arms and no legs.

    Nine states developed plans that were recognized by the experts as satisfying all six criteria outlined in the guidance provided by the Department. These are New Jersey, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, Louisiana, New Mexico, Kansas, Maryland and Nevada.

    I did notice that most of the buses in Wisconsin are short.
