The system by which the nation trains and licenses its public school teachers recently come under sharp attack from an organization called the National Commission on Teaching and America's Future (NCTAF). The commission charged that public schools employ large numbers of unqualified teachers, largely as a result of inadequate and poorly enforced standards for teacher training and licensing. The commission blames current conditions on state education departments and many teacher education programs.

The NCTAF has misdiagnosed the problem of teacher quality.
