Should there be a consistent standard that all teachers meet? If so, what would be the standard
For education schools and other teacher preparation providers, a board exam would set a clear threshold for success that could be used to assess the quality of programs as well as to encourage providers to share good skills. Done properly, a board exam would influence what occurs during hiring and professional development. A board exam would enable teachers to begin their careers with much master levels of skill, to see themselves as part of a profession with a shared and expanding knowledge base, and to have pride that comes from entering a selective profession.
