Wisconsin teacher licensure changes

Post by Admin on Wed May 27, 2015 12:47 pm

Last week the Joint Committee on Finance passed a motion (motion #457) that drastically changes teacher licensure in Wisconsin. It eliminates the need for anyone to complete a teacher education or alternative program leading to licensure in grades 6-12. The provisions of the motion allow anyone with a BA to teach English, math, science, or social studies courses and get a full license if a school board, charter school, or private school feels they are proficient and have relevant experience. There are no minimum state requirements, not even a high school diploma, to receive a permit. You can find an article with more information here.
