More info on the Sanders study of learning benefits of board certification

The Greensboro News-Record provides a little more detail on the study done by William L. Sanders "found that students of nationally certified teachers make no greater classroom gains than do other students".

Not exactly what folks arguing for greater professionalization and higher qualitative standards in the teaching workforce are the key to greater student learning. One worry is that tying incentives to board certification may overlook equaly effective teachers.
