Someone's finally showing some sense on Education
Gov. Mitch Daniels signed into law some new rules for folks wanting to teach 5-12 in Indiana. The new rules state that people teaching in those grades must at least have a baccalaureate degree in the subject(s) that they are wanting to teach. Prior to this, teachers only had to know HOW to teach and did not have to know anything about the subjects that they teach. Of course colleges of education and teacher's unions had a collective apoplectic fit since it breaks their monopoly on the profession.
