Teacher Stipend Bill Advances In Colorado Legislature

Education News Colorado (3/8, Engdahl) reports that a measure to "provide stipends to teachers who hold certifications from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards" passed out of the Colorado state House Education Committee this week, noting that under the legislation, "all board-certified teachers would receive annual stipends of $1,600; those who teach in low-performing schools would get an extra $3,200. Sponsor Rep. Judy Solano, D-Brighton, argued that national certification is a 'proven program' that reflects teacher quality and that teachers should be encouraged to earn certification."
