Sal Khan is not a state-certified teacher

I've mentioned before that I don't understand all the fuss about being a state-certified teacher. And in a new essay, Gary North reminds us that, umm, Sal Khan "was never formally certified as a teacher."
Khan has proven that 100+ years of educational theory is wrong. With no training whatsoever in a formal program of education, he became, almost overnight, the most important teacher in the history of the world. The teachers' union can scream bloody murder, but it won't do any good. His program is clearly better than anything that the typical tax-funded public school has to offer.
