New Licensing System for Teachers

Aspiring teachers in Minnesota and 18 other states are already preparing for new, more demanding requirements for teaching licenses in the next few years.

Under the new system, video of student teachers in their classroom will be evaluated along with documents showing candidates can prepare a lesson, tailor it for different kinds of students and present it effectively.

CBS News Report:


Most states now only require that would-be teachers pass their class work and a written test.

Supporters say the new Teacher Performance Assessments will result in better rookie teachers and, in turn, more successful students.

Minnesota is scheduled to be the first state to adopt the new system in 2012. Massachusetts, Ohio, Tennessee and Washington plan to implement it within five years.
