I think even writing a long piece like this, no matter how factual, just gives the far-right propaganda outfit National Council on Teacher Quality more publicity than it deserves.
It has been promoting some garbage rating teacher preparation programs, but NCTQ doesn't believe teachers should be educated professionals in the first place. It's all about LOWERING standards for teachers, not increasing them, and destroying their salaries and benefits.
I saw through that outfit a long time ago. They weren't about kids or about teachers at all; they are all about destroying public education in this country for private gain.
All one has to do is look at who funds it and is on its board of directors.
