Screening for Teacher Education and Certification: A Brief.
Copley, Patrick O.
This paper discusses court cases that are a legal basis for screening programs for teacher education. The Supreme Court case of Adler v. Board of Education established that the states do have the power to set up requirements or rules concerning the quality of moral character in applicants for teaching certificates. Vogulkin v. State Board of Education defines the reason for denying a teaching license. Subjective evaluation elements in addition to academic scholarship may be required for teacher certificates as in the case of People, el rel Odel v. Glaningam. Other state cases are also briefly discussed that uphold the denial of certification on the basis of lack of good moral character. In conclusion, the requirement of subjective evaluation and screening of teacher education students and teacher certification has a legal status as well as a professional one. However, due process is a vital aspect in screening candidates. (PD)
