Every person I know has to be qualified for their job. I want teachers to be supremely qualified. Forgot bills like this that undermine the intent. Protect teachers by paying them more, incentivize smart and driven young people into the field and gradually roll back mandates like this. We can't just abandon rules like this without something else better to take its place. Give 50 States the option to make 50 bad choices and they'll all happily oblige.
