AFT and NEA: Killing Teacher Education in the Name Of…?
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was brought to you via bipartisanship, the American Federation of Teachers, the National Education Association and “others.”
ESSA creates unaccountable, fast-track teacher certification academies that operate independently from colleges and universities.
These academies offer a certificate that must be recognized as the “equivalent of at least a Master’s degree” from a traditional college and/or university.
The two national teachers’ unions look to be complicit in killing teacher education.
