Reciprocity. Certification of Special Education Personnel.
Blankenship, M. Elise; Pritchett, E. Milo
This report contains the proceedings of the Institute for Higher Education and State Department of Special Education Personnel. It summarizes the activities of educators and administrators from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Michigan, and Wisconsin during a 3-day meeting. The Institute investigated problems involved in establishing interstate reciprocity in certification of teachers of handicapped children and developed possible working models with plans for implementation. The General Session I discussed the current status of certification requirements in the six states represented at the Institute with specific comments on the problems and concerns in reaching a reciprocity agreement for Special Education personnel. Three models of reciprocity in various stages of development were presented: the Interstate Compact Model, the Michigan Model, and the Eleven State Compact Model in Elementary Education. The legal and legislative aspects of reciprocity were discussed before grouping the participants according to state and instructing them to develop their own working models for reciprocity. With the emphasis on interaction, the six models were discussed and General Session III presented the finalized model: Midwest Reciprocity Program in Special Education. The report contains a summary of the proceedings and appendices with the certification officers and certification requirements of Special Education. (BRB)
