Filed at 4:00 am under by dcobranchi

HIGHLY QUALIFIED Pres. Bush’s NCLB Act mandates that all public-school classrooms have a “highly-qualified” teacher. That’s been interpreted to mean “fully certified.” What, then, do we make of this statement from Susan Sclafani, an aide to U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige?

“Evidence of the value of (teacher) certification, in general, is equivocal at best.”

Is certification important or not?
