All 50 States Failing Teacher Qualifications.

WASHINGTON — Not a single state will have a highly qualified teacher in every core class this school year... The Education Department on Friday ordered every state to explain how it will have 100 percent of its core teachers qualified — belatedly — in the 2006-07 school year.
In the meantime, some states face the loss of federal aid because they didn't make enough effort to comply on time, officials said.

And tell me again, why do we need vouchers? I don't care what people say about church and state and whatever; they're not unconstitutional. The throw money at the problem solution obviously doesn't work - look at No Child Left Behind. If funding and "support" like that doesn't make our public schools a better place, nothing will. Competition is the only thing that works. And last time I checked, we are still a Capitalistic nation.
