Imagine the federal government decided to devote one and a quarter billion dollars a year to help state educational institutions train teachers. These are many of the teachers who will spend time with our children, helping them learn the skills they will need to navigate the journey to adulthood. It’s an important and challenging responsibility that not everybody can perform successfully. They are charged with our nation’s future, one inquisitive mind at a time. So, imagine the federal government understands the challenge and decides to help. Would it not make sense to ensure the dollars dedicated to the process are spent wisely?
