Teacher Standards and Licensing Boards (and Practices Commissions). A Listing Supplied by State Affiliates.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Div. of Instruction and Professional Development.
Basic data about State Teacher Standards and Licensing Boards (STSLB) (and practices commissions) that now exist and the names of persons who may be contacted for further information are listed. The listing is factual only. The inclusion of any board or commission does not mean that the body meets the criteria of the National Education Association. In some cases, a particular board or commission that currently has responsibility for teacher licensing was not viewed as a teacher standards board by the state association and therefore is not listed. The listing includes the state, the title of the association along with contact persons. the total members, number of teacher members, number of staff and meetings, and in some cases the amount of funds in the budget. Table 1 presents the powers and responsibilities of STSLBs by state according to 12 criteria, such as certification and teacher contracts. Table 2 gives data on membership for STSLBs by state under the broad headings of teachers, administrators, and higher educators. Table 3 provides information on qualifications for membership by individual state, then the variables of state resident, U.S. citizen, and professional qualifications. (DMT)
