Preparation Programs and Certification Standards for Teachers of Science and Mathematics in the SREB Region.
Cornett, Lynn M.
In the introduction to this report, it is noted that the quality of mathematics and science education in our schools depends to a great extent on the teachers in the classroom, and that the competency of the teachers depends on preservice preparation programs and state certification requirements which insure that minimum standards have been satisfied. The report describes the status of certification requirements for elementary and secondary mathematics and science teachers in the 14 states in the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) region. The content of programs to prepare science and mathematics teachers is outlined. In addition, recommendations from the National Science Teachers' Association (NSTA) and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) concerning certification and program standards are discussed relative to the SREB findings.
