Don't Leave the Teachers Out

While many took notice of the Frank Herbert op-ed about the impact of dysfunctional high schools (Education's Collateral Damage), not enough attention may have gone to the editorial that accompanied it during the same week: Failing to Teach in High School, which raises key issues about the quality of teachers in high schools and the adequacy of the teacher preparation programs that deliver them.

Another great report on teacher recruitment and retention out from Philadelphia's Research For Action: The Quest for Quality: Recruiting and Retaining Teachers in Philadelphia (PDF via Gadfly).
