A new law and proposed rules for licensing Arkansas’ kindergarten-through-12th-grade teachers feature an “education career continuum” to enable teachers to “lead without leaving,” or advance professionally while continuing to teach.

How bout we license the parents? If they had to jump through he hoops teachers do, maybe they would send better-prepared kids to school.

Why, as a subscriber that already pays way more than the downsized paper is worth, do I have to go through these "survey" hoops to read every item I click on. Come on folks,

What you may not know is that one of the proposed changes mentioned in the last paragraphs would allow schools to license teachers themselves, without going through quality training or even standard training that higher ed programs provide. This is a dangerous turn if approved. If you know someone on the board, I would implore you to make contact and ask why this seems like a good idea to them.

Maybe they just need to leave it alone. I'd expect there's a hidden agenda somewhere.

I'm with arkateacher54, my wife is a nationally board certified, master degree'd teacher. It just blows my mind when she tells me all the things she is required to do to accommodate all the special snowflakes and their helicopter parents. All the while making sure nobody's feelings get hurt! And still she has to maintain her credentials and competency requirements throughout the year! If she was a baby sitter she'd be making over $150K a year!
