Ind. schools chief wants teacher licensing changes

More by this author

Indiana’s state schools chief plans to announce proposed teacher licensing changes he says would improve the quality of teachers at public schools.

Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Bennett wants to require elementary education majors to minor in core subjects such as math or English while limiting undergraduate coursework in education. The Indianapolis Star reports that Bennett also wants to allow any teacher to become a principal by passing a test instead of taking courses as currently required.

Bennett planned a Statehouse news conference Wednesday morning to outline the proposals. They’ll be presented later in the day to the Indiana Professional Standards Board.
