Connecticut Teacher Certification - Fumble on the Goal Line

That State of Connecticut was on the verge of some very rational reforms to its certification requirements, but the State Senate decided not to act.

The Hartford Courant summarizes the bill as follows:

The proposal would have made it easier for qualified professionals to make a mid-career shift and enter the teaching ranks. They still would have needed a teaching certificate but would no longer have had to take content-area classes on subjects they already know.

The measure would have taken effect in July, 2010. It also would have streamlined the certification process for teachers and administrators already certified in another state
