Should it be more difficult to get into education programs?

The following excerpt comes from a piece by Amanda Ripley at "Slate" that suggests making it more difficult to get into an education program will greatly improve education.  To read the entire piece, click here.

"So far this month in education news, a California court has decimated rigid job protections for teachers, and Oklahoma’s governor has abolished the most rigorous learning standards that state has ever had. Back and forth we go in America’s exhausting tug-of-war over schools—local versus federal control, union versus management, us versus them.

But something else is happening, too. Something that hasn’t made many headlines but has the potential to finally revolutionize education in ways these nasty feuds never will."
