Certification and Its Implications for Special Education Personnel.
McHenry, Vere A.
Significant changes in state management procedures and in certification of general and special education teachers are occurring as a result of the competency-based movement. The basic task in developing and implementing a workable system is identification of the requisite competencies and determination of competency measurement procedures. Special education (SE) presents problems in certification which are held in common with general education and are unique to SE. Some SE trends that will foster changes in certification are educating handicapped students in regular classes with resource room teacher support and reducing the number of categories for SE certification. That the performance based concept has also permeated inservice teacher education is evident from changing recertification procedures and increased interstate reciprocity in certification. (MC)
