She has a degree in science. Not many American science teachers can say the same. I wonder, though, what the quality of her degree is.

Didn’t that LA mayor dork (the guy who took his wife’s name when they married) and the LA teacher’s have a falling out? :-)

LAUSD is officially insane now, importing Third World teachers to teach imported Third Worlders.

Which would be funny except we get to pay for it.

The problem is the artificial beloved-by-unions barriers placed in the way of K-12 education. You would think that any person with a Master’s degree in math or science would be allowed to teach - but no, you have to pony up for 2 years of Marxist pablum known as education theory before you can teach.

My daughter just graduated from Texas A&M with a 3.9 GPA and a triple majaor in Chemistry, Biochemistry and Genetics, a 38 on the MCAT and missed one question on the GRE.

She has not decided what she wants to do for a PhD (or MD). Her solution was to enroll in a summer based MEd degree that has her teach during the school year. She will be teaching 9th grade science in the Cy-Fair school district next year. The teacher’s salary actually looked good compared to the stipend that most grad schools would pay.

My wife and I were checking out a pre-school for our daughter near Seattle. There was not a single native English speaker in the entire school: teacher, administrator, or student. All the teachers were from either India or the Philippines. 99% of the students were Indian, one was Asian, and one was eastern European. (This is near Microsoft, so the kids are mostly children of MS employees.)

I have nothing against Indians or Filipinos, but it just doesn’t seem good having foreigners teach my daughter read, writing, and pronouncing English. Am I being overcautious?
