Teacher Education Policy in the States: A 50-State Survey of Legislative and Administrative Actions.
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
This publication updates information from prior surveys of the 50 states and the District of Columbia in the areas of: (1) requirements for regular licensure (standards an individual must meet to be issued an initial or advanced teaching credential); (2) requirements for licensure--emergency or shortage-driven (the process by which a person who does not meet requirements for a regular license may be hired to fill a classroom vacancy when there is a shortage of qualified personnel); (3) requirements for licensure--alternative programs (information on routes to be taken by nontraditional students that provide accelerated preparation for teaching); (4) standards boards (any official state entity that may recommend or establish standards for program approval and for the issuance of licenses); and (5) minority teacher recruitment (state-sponsored studies, proposals, legislation, or programs that address the problem of a decline in the number of minorities entering the teaching profession). In this edition two new categories, teacher education review and study (state-sponsored studies, proposals, legislation, or programs that address teacher education standards, issues, or trends); and response to violence (efforts states have made on statewide and local levels to address increasing violence in schools) are included. Also, state requirements for entry to and exit from teacher preparation programs are clarified. (LL)
