Stevens, a member of the new task force, commented in today's P-G. And
once again we have someone talking about effective teachers. He states

Bill Gates' millions of
dollars would have been more "effective" and useful if the money was
spent on pre-school programs, after-school programs, tutoring, community
programs, recreation centers, parental support, etc. instead of
focusing on "effective teachers." Think of what all that money could
have done for our students and communities."
