WANTED: A National Manpower Policy for Education MS Word - This paper urges the federal government to create a national education manpower program to meet the ambitious goals of having a "highly qualified" teacher in every classroom, as required by the No Child Left Behind Act, and of narrowing the achievement gap between disadvantaged and advantaged students. The paper's blueprint is modeled heavily on the federal government's medical manpower programs, as well as successful teacher programs in states such as Connecticut and North Carolina and in school districts such as New York City and San Diego. This paper is one of eight in a series exploring the appropriate federal, state and local roles in a number of areas (including standards, assessment and accountability and school choice) in light of the states-rights provisions of the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
