Teachers are Dumb, But Certification is a Hurdle?

When I read news articles or watch news discussion segments about education, I will usually read comments such as these:

  • Teachers come from the bottom of their high school class.
  • Teachers have the lowest SAT scores.
  • The education degree is "easy" and is often a fallback for those who didn't do well in another major. 
  • Those who can't do, teach. 

However, some of these same people will talk about how teacher certification is a barrier to getting teachers in the classroom.

Which one is it?
