Indiana Reduces Qualifications To Teach

It doesn’t take as much to become a teacher as it used to.

The State Board of Education has approved new rules for Indiana teacher licensing that will cut requirements for obtaining certain permits.

The vote was 7-3 to approve the new standards.

Conservative supporters said that the new rules will make it easier to become a teacher.

Teachers say that is true because you won’t have to know as much due to lower qualifications, to gain a license.

The push for the new guidelines began with former Gov. Mitch Daniels and former Schools Superintendent Tony Bennett back in 2009.
