New Teaching Rules And Local Comments
Individuals who want to teach in Wisconsin schools may be able to do so without traditional certification. State Superintendent Tony Evers says that a new equivalency license will allow those with at least three years of teaching experience in a private setting or in a childcare facility to get into the public school system. La Crosse Schools Superintendent, Randy Nelson, likes the new approach.
Candidates would be required to pass a performance based assessment. Governor Walker addressed the new plan with enthusiasm saying it will help get qualified teachers into high need areas.
