Toward High and Rigorous Standards for the Teaching Profession. Initial Policies and Perspectives of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. Third Edition.
National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, Detroit, MI.
Teaching is at the heart of education, and the single most important action the nation can take to improve schools is to strengthen teaching. A national certification system that reliably identifies teachers who meet high and rigorous standards can galvanize the entire system. In this volume, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) presents its initial policies and perspectives on teaching. The document presents discussions on: (1) significant challenges facing the American system of schooling; (2) a vision of how National Board Certification will influence educational policy and practice; (3) what teachers should know and be able to do; (4) fields in which certificates will be offered; (5) prerequisites for candidacy; (6) assumptions and guidelines that govern the National Board's research and development program; (7) education policy and reform issues that are related to National Board Certification; and (8) implementation plans of the NBPTS for the next several years.
