#1 Smeggin' hell! How much math do you need to teach elementary? I suspect what is happening is the prospective teachers are getting a taste of the new Common Core curriculum and it's confusing the poor dears.

#4 All of their electives were in Union Organizing Outreach 1001 and miscellaneous Social Studies 3003? Who needs those icky STEM courses when you need to organize against The Systemâ„¢!

#7 Just try to find some sample questions. Looks like you don't get to see a practice test until you pay up - $100 to $200 and nearly that much for a re-test.

#8 Pay 100$-200$ for a Certification Test? Is this a legitimate test or a Credential Scam between the testers and corrupt officials?

#9 Most IT certification tests run $120-150 a pop, so I can see a certification test for teachers running $100 a taking.
