I tell my students every year that we would not want doctors who treat cancer with poultices to practice medicine. We would probably sue such a "doctor" for malpractice. Our society, however, is perfectly content to let incompetent teachers perform the instructional equivalent of malpractice without a second thought. It's about time we (society, parents, students???) started a movement to get these people out of the classroom at ALL levels.
