Union calls for teacher certification exam.

There should be a photo ID also for the test.

There is no single, national standard for teacher certification, although the federal government does ask states to meet certain criteria to be eligible for federal funding.

The proposal by a major teachers union to impose tougher requirements on its own members may signal a shift in tone for a profession facing heightened scrutiny. In recent years, unions such as AFT have resisted calls to end tenure and to tie teachers' evaluations to their students' test scores.

But by embracing more rigorous certification standards, the union hopes to raise the status of the teaching profession, which could reap future rewards when it comes to compensation and other benefits. In its report, AFT drew comparisons between teaching and other professions that require advanced professional training, such as medicine and law.

The union's executive council will consider whether to approve the report at a February meeting. Other teachers unions including the National Education Association have yet to weigh in on the proposal.

You know, and I know, that if the teachers union has any say in the certification process; it will be all about whether the prospective teachers toe the left wing union line, and have little or nothing to do with actual qualifications. As someone once pointed out; Albert Einstein wouldn't have been eligible to teach a high school science class since he didn't have a degree in education.

Absolutely!

The Progressives are not so much concerned as to how teachers do their job as they are about what it is they are teaching!

For the unions it is all about control, not about the kids.
