Good enough for the college...

Tennessee is taking the steps to make it so college professors can teach at the high school level as well as at the college level. It seems only logical if they are smart enough to teach in college they can teach at a high school.

Also an alternative route to allow people to become a high school teacher is also being pushed for people with actual special life skills (Such as being a nuclear scientist at ORNL) so they can teach in their field in high schools.

Of course, the teachers unions are fighting these steps with every thing they have.

  1. The thing is, it definitely takes some special skill to teach well. And some training could potentially facilitate that skill. But I cannot for the life of me understand what good an entire major's worth of classes would do toward that goal. Education seems to me like a fluff major.
