Letter: To help schools, make teaching mandatory for all college grads
First Published Mar 12 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Mar 12 2014 01:01 am

There is always talk of school teachers having classrooms so large they can’t really be effective. There is also talk of teachers’ income being too low. For these two reasons, I would dread to be a teacher. For these two reasons I also admire teachers.

Therefore I propose an idea. What if teaching was mandatory for college students? Each college student would have to teach a year in a public school in their area of interest. If they truly did not want to fulfill their year in a public school, they could pay out, but who would they pay? A teacher who wants to be there, as a professional.

This way, class sizes could be smaller, teachers could make more money, and there would be other benefits that could arise from this wacky idea. Where is your idea?
