Implementation of a Northeast Regional Credential for Educators in New England and New York. A Policy Group Issue Brief.
Newton, Anne E.; And Others
This document presents the Certification Working Group's proposal for a first step in the creation of the Northeast Common Market--the development of a Northeast Regional Credential (NRC). It is proposed that the NRC will function on the premise that an individual who receives an initial regular teaching certificate could also receive an NRC. The NRC is defined in the first section followed by a description of what it would look like in action, a list of the opportunities it would afford and the issues it presents, such as supply and demand impact, employment opportunities, placement assistance, uniformity in certification requirements, college recruitment, and testing requirements. Included is a review of the actions that have been undertaken to enable the implementation of the regional credential and a brief overview of future considerations. Eight data tables of completed interstate certification contracts and comparability of certificates/endorsements across New England and New York are appended. (SI)
