Summary

This publication updates information from prior surveys of the 50 states and the District of Columbia in the areas of: teacher licensure standards, standards boards, emergency or shortage-driven licensure, alternative preparation, minority teacher recruitment, state response to violence in classrooms, and linkages between efforts towards K-12 education reform and teacher education reform. In addition, the report includes new data concerning professional development of teachers. The data for each state are presented alphabetically by state. For each state report the following headings appear: entrance requirements for teacher education programs, requirements for regular licensure, requirements for emergency or shortage driven credentials, requirements for licensure with alternative preparation, standards boards, minority teacher recruitment, teacher education review and study, professional development, and response to violence. Selected findings from the survey include the following: (1) Changes in requirements for regular licensure suggest three trends--the requiring of a mentoring period during the first year of teaching, testing and additional requirements for licensure, and additional screening and background checks for prospective teachers; (2) continuing educational reform efforts reported by most states; (3) linkage between professional development and the Goals 2000 plan in only a few states.
