Are Master's Degrees Overrated? The Dark Secret of Teacher Quality! - Dr. Albert Cheng

A few weeks ago I ran into Dr. Albert Cheng of the University of Arkansas.

We started talking, and he mentioned he was in the department of education reform. I asked him, "What's one thing about education that you know, that you wish everyone knew?"

"Well," he said, "that teacher training, teacher certification, has no relationship to teacher quality."


I was floored.


I knew this happened in the counseling field. Despite what we say, certification in various models doesn't make you a better counselor. But to see the same in education was fascinating.


So I had to have him on the podcast.


In this interview we talk all about the problems education and how to fix it.


Enjoy!
