Someone needs to explain to me why placing people without teaching credentials into classrooms will reduce the achievement gap. In the studies that I've seen, Teach For America "teachers'" students score below those of qualified teachers. Teaching is not ony about teaching the subject matter, it has to do with knowing about cognitive psychology, planning effective lessons, and using data to analyze shortcomings and successes. I would no more take my child to a Dr. who got an "alternative license" than I would entrust the mind of my child to a teacher on an "alternative license".
