Should Teacher Education Institutions Be Concerned About the Stull Act?
Marks, Merle B.
The Stull Act requires each district to develop a uniform set of written guidelines for use in evaluating competency of its certified personnel; at this point, advice from the certificated instructional personnel must be considered when developing the guidelines. The chief issue raised by it is, "Should legislators or other lay groups be permitted to intrude into the professional's province?" The intrusions have occurred repeatedly, with educators serving as convenient scapegoats. Whether the particular law in question, the Stull Act, becomes a positive or negative instrument will be determined by the spirit of those who must develop the means to reach its goal and the attitude of those who have responsibility for determining what is to be done with the results. For this reason, the profession must be concerned about the Stull Act to ensure that it does not interfere with the development of the best possible programs of teacher education and the requisite laws needed to produce such programs. The legislature must determine desirable goals, but it should not prescribe how the professional should reach those objectives. (Author/JA)
