Summary

The teacher certification scheme, which is built on the student's completion of prescribed courses rather than on his teaching abilities, is in need of change due to the increasing complexity and work load of the teacher, differentiated staffing patterns, new teacher behavior assessment techniques (such as observational records) which make clear the lack of objective criteria for assessing teaching performance and interpersonal competence, and the increasing pressure to accommodate local certification practices to federal bureaucratic funding decisions. Differentiation of roles in teaching (and in administration), developed and tested in a strengthened school-college combine, can create a flexible structure that will enable the beginning teacher to teach at his own level of capacity. A new local responsive authority, composed of professional education personnel, would participate in the establishment of more carefully defined qualifications (which are delineated by differentiation) and assess teaching performance in terms of the school's objectives. The role of the state will then be limited to student record management and to assessment of the activities and rationale of the school-college combine. (SM)
