The principals who hire teachers-and the children they teach-deserve assurance that a teacher will be effective.

Learning to teach well requires a deep understanding of learners and their development, which includes ways to support students who have learning differences or difficulties.

In medicine, more than 90 percent of physicians are board certified. In education, the number is less than 3 percent.

New teachers are not treated with the same level of professionalism, compensation, preparation, and reverence as other equivalent professionals.

We must also insist that only masterful, thoughtful, and proven educators can adequately teach the teachers.
