Half Of States Using Teacher Entry Exam.


EdSource Today (3/22, Riley) reports that there is "a major national education reform under way, with its origins in California; which may result in the creation of a national 'bar exam' to enter the teaching profession; and yet few in the education community seem to be paying attention to this effort or weighing in on whether it's worth supporting? This is the story of the education Teacher Performance Assessment, or edTPA." The piece notes that the idea has risen quickly, and that it "is now being used in at least 25 states (to varying degree) to determine whether newly trained teachers are ready to set foot in the classroom."
