The issue of qualification is a pertinent one as we move forward into a highly highly connected world. Teaching pedagogy has evolved to employ exciting new techniques that parallel the fast-paced nature of our world. The downside is that teaching is now a tremendously competitive field. Just like teachers, schools talk among each other about what works and what not. Everyone is expecting the best.
