'In a nutshell, turn up at a charter school door with a bachelors’ degree, and you can become a certified teacher in weeks. The SUNY proposal by the charter committee allows charter schools to hire uncertified teachers and to do their own certifying.

Let them know every New York child deserves a well-trained, qualified teacher.
