Jenna Bush to help recruit more young people to go into teaching?

Suzanne Fields has a column over at Townhall about Jenna Bush’s desire to teach at a Washington, DC public school. Fields concludes:

If Jenna Bush reflects the ambition of her generation, leading more of our best and brightest into teaching, that will be all to the good for our fourth and eighth graders – and for the rest of us. Let’s hope.

Well, I certainly hope so too. Jenna may get many more young people to go into teaching for two reasons. 1) They look up to the President’s daughters, and 2) They may assume that they too will get much needed Secret Service protection.
