A Study of Reciprocity for Certifying Teachers in Georgia. Issues for Education Series.
Georgia Professional Standards Commission, Atlanta.
This monograph is a compilation of information gathered and studied by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission in considering whether to recommend reciprocity in certification for out-of-state teachers. An examination was made of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC). It was felt that, while NCATE and NASDTEC did not imply reciprocity, the Interstate Certification Project (ICP) did. Consideration was given to the opinions of Georgia school personnel. Comparisons were made of NCATE and NASDTEC standards and certification requirements of non-ICP states and ICP states. Following deliberations, it was recommended to the State Board of Education that legislation be initiated so that Georgia can join the ICP. (JD)
