It’s said that those who can’t do, teach. But in New York, those who can’t learn, teach. According to The New York Times, the state Board of Regents will no longer require teachers to pass the Academic Literacy Skills Test [alst] to become certified. Makes sense. Why should teachers have to be literate? After all, “the [literacy] test proved controversial because black and Hispanic candidates passed it at significantly lower rates than white candidates.” This despite a federal judge ruling in 2015 that the alst literacy test was not biased, “because it measured skills that were necessary for teaching.” Well, that’s out the window now. The Regents also want teachers who fail the test measuring practical skills like lesson planning to be certified anyway, based on “recommendations.” No wonder The New York Post sneers that the new state education motto should be: “Dumbing Down.”

2 Timothy 2:2
“And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.”
The Christian’s responsibility is to bear fruit. Jesus says in John 15:8, “Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.” You will never be a good Christian until you have fruit that remains.
“That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.”
Communicating is the imparting of thoughts, opinions, or information to another person. Communicating is giving our thoughts or opinions in such a manner that the person listening or reading understands what we are saying.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Everything has a byproduct or a result of doing something. For instance, charcoal is the byproduct of Henry Ford using wood to make parts for cars.
