Radio Iowa: Speedier teacher licensing process proposed for experienced college grads
The chairman of the House Education Committee has come up with a plan that would let college graduates with three years of work experience get a teaching license within a year.
Republican Representative Dustin Hite of New Sharon said Iowa school administrators tell him they’re having a hard time hiring teachers.
“Making sure that we have quality, qualified teachers for years to come is just important to all Iowans,” Hite said during a news conference on the House floor. “It’s certainly important to people like me who have kids in school.”
