81. We weren't talking about common sense.
To begin with there is nothing common about sense. Furthermore, we were talking about research based data, something you have not presented. Even assuming you have any sense, before you could assume your 1:1000 poor teacher ratio, you would still need an agreed upon definition of what a poor teacher is. Presently, people who actually know something about educational issues have pretty much determined that whatever good or poor teaching is (based upon empirical data), it isn't based upon standardized testing. What do you base it upon besides your emotional convictions and the opinion pages of News Week?
