This series of articles examined equality among schools by looking specifically at teacher qualifications. The reporters found that thousands of teachers struggled to pass basic skills tests and that one in three teachers failed an exam at least one time. Furthermore, the reporters found that the teachers who struggled the most on the tests were funneled into poor and minority schools, while those who did well went to wealthier white schools.
