Report Shows We're Not Teaching Our Teachers

A report by the National Council on Teacher Quality shows that as a nation we're doing a mediocre job of preparing teachers for the workforce. Nevada schools such as the University of Nevada Reno, and Las Vegas scored very low according to the four-star standard set in the report. Educators across the country have spoken out saying the report is flawed. What are the standards for creating teachers?
