IRA and Reading Certification in Ohio.
Weir, Leona Scott
Since November 1966, the Research Committee of Ohio Council of the International Reading Association (IRA) has been working for Reading Certification in Ohio. By December 1967, contact was established with the State Department of Education through the Division of Teacher Education and Certification, and definite plans for recommendations for certification were made. Certification problems in teacher shortage, time elements, and impersonal factors were studied; standards that would establish reading as a specialized area by certification were decided on. Three educators involved in college reading selected required subject areas and recommended a minimum of three semester hours each in Survey of Reading, Diagnosis and Correction of Reading Disabilities, and Laboratory Practice in Reading Improvement. Final recommendations were sent to interested people in Ohio and a hearing has been scheduled for consideration of the recommendations. (NS)
