Writing in Common Dreams, Diane Ravitch looks at the state of teaching as a profession. She notes that some of the leading “education reformers” constantly attack teachers as the problem without proposing a real solution. In Finland teachers are given five years training before they reach the classroom. In the U.S., half of new teachers leave the profession in their first five years. That’s a problem, and the reformers only answer seems to be “bust the union.”
