What We Need is 82 'Teacher Quality' Programs!!

The GAO releases a report today. Among the findings:

On teacher quality, the report identified 82 programs that often have similar descriptions and goals and are spread across 10 federal agencies, including the Department of Education, the Department of Energy and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Nine of these programs are linked to science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Fifty-three of the programs are relatively small, receiving $50 million or less, "and many have their own separate administrative processes."

And every single one is 100% effective, right?

There's a LOT of info at the link. But if you're inclined to clinical depression, don't read the article.
