It is a sad day in America when we want people to have experience and qualifications to referee football games but not to teach our kids. Virtual schools hire non certified teachers to teach 250 kids at a time and state after state is bringing in TFA recruits to man our classrooms. My friend’s daughter, a junior in college teaches at a local private school for 12 bucks an hour. Heck even Scott walker who never met a union he liked came out for the referees while at the same time he denigrates the teaching profession in Wisconsin.
We may be doomed.
