TN Teachers Praise New Law on Licensure
Tennessee teachers feel they won a huge victory with a new law signed by the governor this week, rejecting a state department of education policy – a policy that would have student learning gains as the sole or overriding reason to revoke a teacher’s license. Jennifer Padilla, human resources director of Bristol Tennessee schools, said, “Teacher licensure shouldn’t be tied to one individual measure of performance but overall teacher performance.” Although adopted in August, the policy was so unpopular it was never implemented.
