Teaching Tolerance, n40 p52-55 Fall 2011
Schools of education at colleges and universities are still the primary source of new teachers in U.S. schools. For the last generation, however, a small but growing stream of people has been taking a different path to the front of the classroom. These new teachers are the fruit of alternative teacher certification programs, programs that quickly train and place thousands of new teachers each year, often in under-resourced districts scrambling to fill teaching vacancies. So is alternative certification good for U.S. schools? Teaching Tolerance decided to find out where the debate over that question stands today.
