Denton offers teaching contract to a five-year old. What????

You read that right.  Denton ISD has offered a teaching contract to Brenden Flowers, a kindergarten student.  Brenden is to start work in 2033, assuming he gets his degree and teaching certificate by that time.

Brenden is a cute little guy, and this makes for a cute story.  It is obviously a way to encourage young people to think about becoming teachers. But still….let’s not let Dan Patrick find out that school districts are recruiting kindergarten kids.  He will use it as evidence to justify school choice.  Can’t you just hear it?

“These government schools are now so desperate that they are hiring kindergarten kids to teach!  We have to give parents more choices!!”

Here’s the story.
