Guidelines for Professional Standards Boards.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. National Commission on Teacher Education and Professional Standards.
This document is a report of the Joint Committee on Professional Standards Boards appointed by the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC), the National Commission on Teacher Education and Professional Standards (NCTEPTS), and the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE). A background section reviews the organization and responsibilities of the 11 legally established state professional standards boards presently functioning or in the planning stage. The second section presents a rationale for the creation in each state of a legally established board charged with the responsibility to advise the state department of education on policy and standards related to licensure of teachers; revocation or suspension of licenses; review of waiver of certification requirements; assignment of teachers; accreditation of teacher education; programs, studies, and research designed to improve teacher education, including continuing education. The final section offers 16 specific suggestions (regarding the size, selection, composition, authority, policies, functions, and financing of such boards) for use by educational associations, institutions, and groups in states desiring to build a "legal bridge for professional self-determination" through the teaching profession's involvement and responsibility for professional standards.
