The Role of the State Department of Education in Managing Teacher Education and Certification.
Golden, William Cecil
The Florida State Department of Education research and development program is aimed at transforming three significant educational ideas into possibilities: increased productivity in the educational system, increased accountability for educational programs, and continuing self-renewal in all of education. Target dates provide that by 1972 techniques for improving educational management will be available to all school districts in Florida and by 1974 competencies expected of teaching personnel in elementary and secondary schools will be clearly identified. As a part of this overall program, a method of performance-based teacher certification is being developed based on the program approval approach. Institutions will be required to engage in a systematic procedure for determining competencies and methods of assessment. At the same time, as state-sponsored research identifies teacher competencies related to pupil learning, these competencies will become a part of state program approval standards. For several years traditional teacher certification practices will be maintained parallel with certification through completion of an approved performance-based program. The same principles of the program approval approach used for preservice programs are to be used for state review and approval of school district inservice teacher education programs. (RT)
