Issues in Certification Needs.
Jones, Philip R.; And Others
This paper examines major issues in teacher certification, such as appropriate certification patterns for teachers of students with disabilities, the use of categorical or noncategorical certification, and relevance of certification groupings by grade level for special educators. Secondly, issues of alternative certification are discussed, including the role of alternative certification patterns in the preparation of special education personnel; decision making regarding the standards and requirements for alternative certification; and the role of institutions of higher education. Other issues addressed include reciprocity among states, the establishment of teacher preparation standards and monitoring programs, and placement of the authority for recommending certification. Also noted are such consumer/employer issues as school district problems in finding certificated teachers in all needed areas. (DB)
