I don't want to dwell on it, but when the Seattle Times editorializes in favor of a “bar exam” for teachers that assures "only the most rigorously vetted and well-trained teachers make it into the classroom," do they suffer even the slightest twinge of cognitive dissonance from knowing that just nine months ago they argued that Teach for America teachers, with their five-weeks of training, "perform well enough in classrooms to justify continuing, even expanding, their presence here"...?

I dunno. Just strikes me as a pretty glaring inconsistency.
