Perspectives on Innovative Delivery Systems to Meet School Staffing Needs.
Cady, Lillian; And Others
An edited transcript of a symposium on inservice teacher education provides the viewpoints and experiences of six speakers. Dr. Emily Owens, Director of Teacher Education and Certification in the South Carolina Department of Education, discussed a South Carolina law (effective in July 1982) that has six minimum requirements for application for teacher certification. Edward Aquilone, of the New York City Board of Education, spoke on the licensing situation in New York, and on how it was complicated by the 1975 fiscal crisis, the mandated hiring of bilingual teachers, and a teacher shortage. A combined viewpoint of experiences with inservice teacher education and certification in the Greece, New York school system is given by Bea Rufer (President of the Teacher Association, Greece) and William Easton (Attorney for the School District). Richard Allen addressed criterion-referenced testing for teaching skills from the perspective of his position with National Evaluation Systems, Inc. (Amherst, Massachusetts). David G. Imig, Executive Director of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, discussed national trends that will affect teacher supply and demand. (FG)
