Press Release: New Teacher Certification Exams Raise the Bar

New York has raised the bar for teachers. Those who attain certification under this more rigorous process are more likely to find a job, principals have a better pool of candidates to choose from, and students will be taught by better teachers. In addition, increased accountability for education schools will ensure that these institutions provide the best training possible for the next generation of teachers.
