Simply taking all applicants (volunteers) based only upon their desire for the job is an insane personnel practice. When extremely dangerous weapons are involved, as are the lives of others around you, it is not wise to lower your standards simply to be nice or "fair". Not all change is progress.
    Really, that's not what I said, but what I did say is that we should constantly question the criteria fir a teacher, at all levels, in an effort to improve.

    I simply cannot imagine airborne infantry operations not requiring strength that each of us occasionally wondered if we had.

    Do you have a cyborg suit you're not telling us about?
    I always sought to work smarter. Dd so in the civilian world as well. The older I got, the more I learned people get stuck on a way of doing things and often miss ways to improve. By working smarter, I changed the way our school handled developmental students, and improved comp I completion in that demographic from 29% to 73%. The point is, the test is doing the job.

    How do you define improvement in measuring criteria? It sounds more like you are saying "these criteria aren't benefiting the people we want them to benefit, so lets lower them."

    I'd agree with you that this is true, but it shouldn't be true. Teachers shouldn't be teaching to the test, because students who are taught to the test don't usually do well on the test. I probably spent less then 1% of my school time working on standardized testing material, yet always knocked them out of the park. Then you have students who are in remedial everything and do nothing but learn the test, and they really are missing what they are supposed to be learning.
