Will Lowering Teacher Certification Requirements Improve Sudent Achievement? Do Schools Need Certified Teachers? Do Children?

Will Lowering Teacher Certification Requirements Improve Sudent Achievement? Do Schools Need Certified Teachers? Do Children? | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
We believe in certified professionals as teachers just like we believe in licenses for medical professionals. Are some people natural teachers? We have seen a few but most become great teachers through a process of preparation and ongoing development and practice. Because this is our belief system, we have actually been advocates of renewable certification for teachers and leaders and accredited professional development. How can those who create safe learning environments for children and help them grow into responsible and productive citizens be less than the most qualified?
