Summary

The teaching profession must have certain responsibilities delegated to it by the public if it is to contribute significantly to the improvement of education and to be accountable for what happens in the schools. More is needed than the present extralegal state advisory councils and professional negotiation laws. What we want now in governance is a teaching profession act in every state, created by law, which could give to members of the profession legal power to 1) establish the requirements for and issue certificates for teachers; 2) determine and establish procedures to accredit teacher preparation institutions; 3) define performance criteria for teachers in beginning and later-career roles; 4) conduct a continuous study of teacher standards and practices and recommend needed changes; 5) revoke, suspend, and reinstate certificates when teachers, after a full and fair hearing, are found in violation of the act; and 6) adopt rules and regulations to implement the teaching profession act. The National Council for Teacher Education and Professional Standards (NCTEPS), which is increasing its activities in support of self-governance, is maintaining a clearinghouse so that states may learn from each other the pitfalls to watch for and the various alternatives. Since education is a mass profession it must be organized in states and at the local level in order to develop adequate mechanisms to solve professional problems.
