Do We Continue to License our Teachers?

   There's a teacher crisis here in Utah. We don't have enough teachers. It's a story I need to catch up on.
   I think there are some jobs we overly regulate. We require licensing when it just isn't necessary. I don't know that teaching is one of these, but I am open to thinking about it. Just off top, it seems if you know math, you might be able to teach it. If you know history, you might be able to teach it. The question is not whether you have a piece of paper saying you know something, but whether you do , in fact, know enough about the topic to teach it, and whether you do know how to teach.
   I'm just wondering. I'm not going to come to a conclusion tonight. But, I do wonder.
