Comments on Grade Point Average for Admission to Teacher and Administrator Preparation Programs.
Robbins, Jerry H.
A response is given to the recommendation of the Georgia Governor's Education Review Commission that the grade point average (GPA) requirements for admission to undergraduate teacher education programs in Georgia be raised from the present 2.5 to 2.7. Brief summaries are presented of five studies dealing with the relationship of GPA for admission to teacher education to quality of teaching. A discussion is also offered on the recommendation that the GPA requirement for admission to administrator preparation programs be raised from the present 2.5 on undergraduate work to 3.0. Twelve negative comments are presented on recommendations to raise the GPA requirements for admission to both teacher education and administrator preparation programs, and it is concluded that no changes should be made until six specific conditions are met.
