"Suing to Shut Down �Teach For America�"



Rick Hess reports in the American that a coalition is suing the Department of Education under the No Child Left Behind Act to shut down alternative certification for teachers, which would end effective programs like Teach For America. The problem stems in part from NLCB's certification standards, despite the lack of evidence that traditional teacher certification does anything other than promote cartelization.
