INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (21Alive) -- A controversial change to teaching licensing has survived despite Superintendent Of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz's efforts to kill it.
The Indianapolis Star reports that the Indiana State Board of Education rejected a motion to repeal a proposed change to teaching licensing in Indiana. The change would allow a person to become a teacher if they had a B average in any subject in college.
The proposal is left over from the former state superintendent of public instruction, Tony Bennett. Opponents to the provision feel it would allow for unqualified individuals to become teachers and lessen the value of education degrees.
