In Keeping With the Administration's Swagger: Undermining Teacher Education

File this one under Bush Admin conspiracy theories. Alongside other more prominent and insidious theories of dismantling public education, the surreptitious undermining of teacher education seems to be on the agenda. Check out the Education Department’s “Becoming a Teacher” page.

Notice the first recommended link, an Editor’s Pick no less, is a link for information about alternative certification. No less than four of seven! Of the "Editor’s Picks" on this page direct the user to information about alternative certification. Surprising? Not really. Brazen as hell? Totally! And in line with the Bush Admin’s general swagger.
