- Teachers would have more college-level course work (Or, for vocational arts training, practical experience) on the subjects to be taught rather than such “how to teach” and “politically correct” courses as have lead the way to such academic disaster areas as MPS.
- It appears that 90%-plus of university teachers very much support and teach the anti-principles of”The Left” as is very unlike the conservative-liberal divisions in Wisconsin as expressed in our elections. (It seems likely that those in Schools Of Education are at the high end of that group.)
- The proposed changes in licensing should/must require the very active recruitment of retired military teachers who (In the DOD's excellent technical schools, the military academies and its advanced schools/institutes) have knowledge-bases and teaching-experiences much greater that the vast majority of new and, also, of many senior teachers as now licensed in both “vocational” matters and in such subjects as history and civics. [Those retired military teachers will also offer examples, by precept and example, of self-discipline, duty and sacrifice for the “common good” as so lacking in our general society.]

The recently proposed changes in Wisconsin's teacher-licensing laws offers various-and-great opportunities to distill (NOT "Dilute") the qualifications of Wisconsin's teachers--By recruiting and using select military veterans.
The last advantage is likely to be one most rejected by the present “Professional Educators”, their supporters in teachers' unions and bought/leased politicians as it offers a very great threat to their political orientation AND their over-blown senses-of-self-worth.
A. I am a graduate of UW-Milwaukee and of US Navy technical schools.
B. The active recruitment of such retired/retiring DOD teachers could be expedited by: Sending “job announcements” to all such schools; Advertisements in newspapers published on or near those DOD facilities having schools; And, by special-and-ongoing lobbying with the DOD and VA (Who have, I believe, relevant placement programs). A central "clearing house" for such vacancies in Wisconsin's Public AND other schools could be, by statute, given the duty for such recruitment.
C. Since retired members of the Armed Forces already have very hard-earned retirement-pay and medical-benefits, they may be willing to be "more flexible" on pay and fringe-benefits as teachers.

'We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional. We hold these truths to be self evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights.'
ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy. Your being armed may likely prevent you from harm from criminal attacks and allows you to exercise you right to self-defense AND avoid being guilty of aiding in your being harmed.
ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of your care of public housing, you are just not interested in public health care.
If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us want to see you in a cell with a 275# body builder with the "hots" for you OR meet some citizens who will provide you with "two to the chest and one to the head".
ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful. If you fail to oppose politicians allowing floods of job-stealing “Illegals” to enter OUR nations, you have forfiting your job.
ARTICLE XI: You do not have the right to change our country's history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, sorry if you are uncomfortable with it. If you are too unhappy with that I suggest you move to places controlled by ISIS or to North Korea.
