Harsher Standards For Teachers Could Be Coming

Some Texas teachers may soon have a more difficult time stepping into a classroom.

A new proposal by the State Board of Educator Certification would force some programs that certify more than half the state's new teachers to adopt stricter standards.

The requirements would impose harsher rules on who would be accepted to alternative certification programs.  Those programs are often used by those trying to get into teaching from another field.

The proposal will go before the State Board of Educator Certification next month.
