You left out the, probably, most aspect that the teachers and all union members instill in their children = GREED!!!!!

howzzat, I do not know that McKinsey leans anyway. They mostly do work for corporations and others who hire them out: "McKinsey & Company is a global management consulting firm.

I am not arguing that a great student will make a great teacher or that a poor student will make a poor teacher but I am arguing that a great student is more likely to be a great teacher and a poor student (albeit one that graduates with teaching credentials) is more likely to be a poor teacher.

As it is now, we have very few (not none) top students entering the field and many from the bottom third.

In this post and some of your others, you seem to really, really, like mckinsey. I read some of their reports and analysis'.

I can not accept the concept that just because a student graduated in the top per cent of their class, that they would make a good teacher. To me, it takes much more than that.

Union-funded hacks like those at the Economic Policy Institute tell us public employees have it rough. Their pay is so low they resort to eating dog food at night. Their pensions are terrible and no one – and we mean no one – should be subjected to such poor health care coverage.

It baffles the mind, then, to look at the honest numbers. Because when one does, it shows that the people at EPI are little more than union shills spewing cooked up numbers to satisfy the paymaster.
