Teacher licensing emerging as key issue | EdNewsColorado


People like Bob Schaffer are right to ask, "Why do we have to have licensure in the first place?" but I'm almost 100% sure we'd come up with different answers. Even if I tried to share most of his free market ideals, I'd recognize that even in a free market parents choose schools, not teachers. In fact, once a student is in a school, the teachers they have should be assigned more or less at random if there's any hope for a value-added/growth model to work, and such models are usually key in the free market education strategy.
