Opinion: US Needs Fewer Teachers.

In her Washington Post (9/17, Rubin) column, Jennifer Rubin explains why the argument for smaller classes is unfounded. Rubin says that the push for smaller classes led to a surplus of teachers as states and districts scrambled to hire enough teachers, but that research shows the effectiveness of a teacher is more important than class size. Rubin recommends that the teacher education and hiring process should be more selective lessening the overall number of teachers and improving the quality of teachers in the future.
