Education advocates are pushing back against a plan that would allow some charter school teachers to become certified without a master’s degree.
The proposal would require teachers to log just 30 hours of instruction and 100 hours of supervised teaching experience – less than the current requirements.
The plan was proposed in an effort to fill positions at charter schools that are struggling to fill teaching posts.
The Education Trust recently sent a letter to the Charter Schools Institute saying the proposal would create a lower tier of teaching, and does not include a way to evaluate its impact on students.
The proposal is up for public comment until Sept. 1.
