What about this law that says that a teacher is not "highly qualified" unless they have a Master's Degree in their field and that federal money will be taken from schools that have teachers on staff without a Master's Degree in their field? I am out raged at this. I have been considering a Master's degree in Library Science, but currently teach 5th grade. This is my 5th year to teach and yes, I do have 1/2 of a Master's in Elementary, but would really love Library Science. What will happen to my job if I don't complete my Master's in my field by 2006? I am so angry about all of this!!!
