On Tuesday, May 4, 2010, I testified before the House Education and Labor Committee. I submitted a written testimony in advance.

The oral testimony and the Q&A can be seen at www.c-spanarchives.org/program/id/223606.

In my remarks I argued for the professional preparation of highly trained and highly skilled teachers who are able to perform competently from their first day in the classroom.  Committee members showed substantial interest in these ideas and there has been some follow-up already.
