Taking Your Talents Across State Lines.
Hartle, Helen; And Others
This booklet is concerned with the Interstate Agreement on Qualification of Educational Personnel, under which school professionals educated or experienced in one state could have their qualifications recognized in many other states without any red tape or delay. Contracts among state education authorities would provide enough similarity in methods of passing on teaching preparatory programs, other programs for the education and training of school professionals, experience qualifications, and any other elements of eligibility for certification, to justify the acceptance of a candidate for certification, or a certified teacher from another state, without an elaborate rechecking process. Some of the problems faced at present by teachers and allied school professionals are examined briefly together with the difficulties experienced in obtaining information on state certification requirements. The Interstate Agreement on the Qualification of Educational Personnel and a Model Enabling Act for it are included in the booklet. (MBM)
