I ran across this article and it struck a cord. What if teaching were a lucrative career choice that would benefit both teacher and student alike? I could write of a few other systems that are antiquated (Post doctoral Research) but I will refrain and not detract from the well written words of Senator Bennet.
I love to hear when our politicians think outside the box and ask what if. The successful ones are able to start a movement and act on their what if. I am willing to support this what if and will be writing Senator Bennet to let him know. If you agree with him, you should let him know too. What-ifs have to start somewhere.
“Our ability to compete for the jobs of tomorrow depends, above all, on our capacity to educate children today. Yet we are still operating under yesterday’s system to attract and retain new, talented teachers. It is outdated and designed to fail.”
