Deconstructing Teacher Certification
Baines, Lawrence A.
Phi Delta Kappan, v88 n4 p326-328 Dec 2006
In this article, the author takes a close look at alternative certification programs and is convinced that, because they vary so extremely in their requirements, all of them cannot possibly be producing highly qualified teachers. Here, he talks about Non-University Certification Programs (NUCPs). These are alternative certification programs that are delivered by agencies not affiliated with a higher education institution. Among other things, the author talks about the growth of alternative certification, as well as the problems encountered in NUCPs. (Contains 3 endnotes.)
