Four Proposals Regarding the Certification and Professional Development of Michigan Teachers.
This paper presents four recommendations of the Michigan State Board of Education regarding the certification and professional development of Michigan teachers. The proposals are that a) a system of fees be charged for teacher certificates and permits, b) a competency--or performance-based certification system be developed, c) a comprehensive professional development program be developed, and d) a commission on teacher certification and professional development be established to work directly with the State Board of Education. The recommendation, background and rationale, implementation, and additional information is presented for each proposal. Appendixes include suggested language to amend the general laws to authorize a system of fees for teacher certification, fees required for certification by each state, and the proposed statute. (MJM)
