A Variety of Links on Education

One can start here (or Google), by searching for an article titled "Fierce battle a preview of U.S. debate on education" on teacher quality and its effects on our schools.

Follow it up with this article regarding Bill Gates and Obama, and then this one from Forbes, also on teachers.

And to finish, there are Jerry Pournelle's thoughts. It seems like such a simple thing: get rid of the poor performers! But taking a dues-paying member from the National Education Assocation (the teacher's union for government schools) is like taking candy from a particularly irritable baby.
