A new type of teaching license has received the initial approval of the State Board of Education.
The new license would allow college graduates with a B average in any subject to earn a K-12 teaching license in Indiana. State schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz tried to kill the proposal but it did pass by a 6-5 vote.
Critics say that this would allow untrained teachers to lead a classroom without understanding childhood development or classroom management.
Those for the idea say that it would allow those with real world experience to pass that along and they would receive teaching training before taking the job.
