The Dallas Morning News has an article that comments on a newly released 78-page report on raising teacher quality. The most important finding in the report is that state certification systems allow into the classroom too many teachers who lack solid content knowledge of the subjects they will teach. This finding is based on data from all 50 states.

The report raises a question that many educators have been asking over the years, which many also consider controversial: How much does the traditional way of training teachers help children learn?
This debate is likely to grow louder in coming years as states try to fill thousands of teaching vacancies with possibly unqualified teachers.
