"All students deserve excellent educators, and all educators deserve our full support," U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan told reporters during a White House press briefing Monday. "To reach these goals, there are no magic bullets or quick fixes and the best ideas, quite frankly, won’t come from any of us here in Washington. … Our department won’t require any particular approach." But, he added, some promising practices include giving strong teachers access to effective principals and colleagues, and paying them fairly, as well as giving teachers time to collaborate and learn from each other.

This is all too vague for me to guess what this could mean for us #education.

Basically it’s looking at how many teachers in a particular school come from highly qualified programs.  Are there a high number of teachers working on transition licenses, emergency licenses, etc. 

And I think it’s funny they call it “teacher distribution” when no one distributes the teachers.  Overwhelmingly, teachers apply where they want to work.  Soooo…make your job offer more appealing and highly qualified, already licensed educators will want to go there.

I don’t think this means anything, really.  I think it’s just grandstanding. “We want good teachers!”  Well…yeah…so does everyone?  Do you want a cookie?

The devil on my shoulder stares, laughing that the one thing I can’t get is what I need.

4. Blink 182 - I Miss You
Like indecision to call you and hear your voice of treason. Will you come home and stop this pain tonight?

5. Leona Lewis - I Will Be
And without you I don’t know what I’d do. I can never, ever live a day without you. Here with me, do you see, you’re all I need?
