22 p. 
Summary

The Association of Teacher Educators (ATE) has established a Commission on Alternative Certification and charged it with writing standards for nontraditional teacher certification programs. The ATE does not advocate the use of emergency-certified and out-of-license college graduates in the place of integrated four- or five-year teacher education programs. The following conditions are the basis for the recommendations in this document: (1) teacher licensing programs should be legally sanctioned by the state; (2) school districts are empowered to select, hire, and recommend alternative candidates for certification; (3) alternative programs are intended to recruit or select college graduates other than those prepared in regular teacher education programs; (4) the required professional preparation is essentially hands-on, on-the-job training with supporting workshops or courses; and (5) programs are school-based and may or may not include the cooperation or the participation of universities. Twenty-three specific recommendations are made. (JD)
