State Education Departments' Policies and Practices in the Approved Program Approach to Teacher Certification (Revised June 1970).
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Teacher Education and Certification.
This publication is a compilation of information from the 50 states and the District of Columbia concerning selected teacher education and certification practices and policies. Its purpose is to help state certification officers find compatible states with which they might work toward formal agreements for interstate teacher certification. At present many factors exist which make it difficult for certified teachers to move freely from one state to another. A faculty would have more to offer, however, if it included persons with varying backgrounds and geographic origins. Interstate certification could also serve to raise the educational level of teacher training institutions within each state. The proposed plan includes 1) an experience route for certificate holders and 2) the approved program approach by which a teaching certificate would be granted automatically and without review of transcript to any graduate of a state-approved higher institution who has that institution's recommendation as a teacher. The following information is provided for each state: 1) legal and policy structure; 2) approval of teacher education programs for certification; 3) criteria for approval of teacher education programs; 4) certification procedures; 5) statistical and other data. A later publication will serve as a manual for states interested in forming interstate certification agreements. (MBM)
