Do Teachers Need to Be Smart?

A USA Today story poses that question. Some say that passing aptitude tests does not ensure a good teacher. I agree.

However, I'd say failing competency tests pretty much guarantees a bad one. I certainly want my kid's teachers to be smart. I'd like to see parents who don't want that.

When we find them,perhaps we can display them in museums.

(Thanks to Mike at Intercepts for finding the story.)
