Summary

This publication updates information from prior surveys of the 50 states and the District of Columbia in the areas of: (1) standards (authorize measures of quality or competency that affect the teaching profession); (2) standards boards (any official state entity that may recommend or establish standards for program approval and for the issuance of licenses); (3) minority teacher recruitment (state-sponsored studies, proposals, legislation, or programs that address the problem of a decline in the number of minorities entering the teaching profession); (4) clinical/field experiences (student teaching or a similar activity); and (5) requirements for entry into and exit from teacher preparation programs. Regular and alternative preparation for licensure is described and options are organized into three categories: requirements for a regular license (those state standards that must be met to earn an initial or advanced teaching credential); emergency or shortage-driven credentials (the process by which a person who does not meet requirements for a regular license may be hired to fill a classroom vacancy when there is a shortage of qualified personnel); and nonshortage-driven alternative preparation for licensure (information on routes to be taken by nontraditional students that provide accelerated preparation for teaching).
