This political bickering has to stop. Not only is she completely incompetent, she doesn't have any experience. Then again you did vote to repeal a law that ensured that our tax dollars were going to qualified teachers. If republicans are so "fiscally conservative" why would they vote to repeal education laws that hold teachers accountable for performance? According to the OECD "While the U.S. spends more per student than most countries, this does not translate into better performance. For example, the Slovak Republic, which spends around USD 53 000 per student, performs at the same level as the United States, which spends over USD 115 000 per student."Quoting from the bill/law that you all voted to gut "These requirements also provide an impetus to States and IHEs to make improvements where they are needed. Thousands of novice teachers enter the profession every year 1 and their students deserve to have well-prepared teachers." So go ahead republicans, throw whoever you want in the classroom. Who needs standards? You're just ruining the future of our children.
