Westerman, John E.
Minimum state standards for teacher education/teacher certification of selected states across the United States are reviewed, including admission to teacher education, general education, professional education, specialization studies, and any additional state requirements. Recommendations and findings of effective schools studies are presented. A brief research review is presented of summary articles on effective teacher characteristics. Finally, the proposals and findings of the effective schools studies and the teacher effectiveness studies are compared to the minimum standards set, in general, by state departments of education for teacher certification.
