[MTC Global] Washington Post: Are teachers professionals?

It seems like a simple question with an obvious answer, but for years teachers have been treated by policymakers as anything but professionals. Their judgments about how to educate and evaluate children are not taken into account, and they are evaluated by measures that statisticians say aren't valid assessment tools (such as when teachers are evaluated by the standardized test scores of students they don't have and subjects they don't teach). Teaching is often deemed "a calling," which is a way of saying that teachers are born and that teaching doesn't really require rigorous training beyond knowing the subject being taught.
