Gail Collins: Scott Walker Needs An Eraser
[su_right_ad]The more we hear about Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, the more we hear that’s troubling.
…Walker went to London on an alleged trade mission and refused to say whether he believes in evolution. Or pretty much anything.
“For me, commenting on foreign policy or, in this case, economic policy in a country where you’re a visitor is not the politest of things,” he told a BBC journalist.
[su_thin_right_skyscraper_ad]Who knows how that will fly with the Republican base? Maybe they’re dying for a president who’ll go on an international trip and confine his remarks to the virtues of Wisconsin cheese…
He wants to change the way teachers are licensed. Basically, the plan would be to let people with “real-life experience” just take a test to demonstrate that they knew their subject matter. It appears to require no training whatsoever in the actual art of teaching.
Besides, we don’t need no stinkin’ trained teachers! Or unons!
His view of teaching is apparently that anybody can do it. Just the way anybody can be president. As long as they don’t make you talk about evolution.
