Any teachers here? (Praxis ?)
I am wondering what the "No Child Left Behind" program means to your district regarding the teachers. I moved a few months ago and will be starting a new job this fall. In my new district, you have to be "highly qualified" (their term, which is why it's in quotes). There are 2 ways to show that you fall into this criteria. You can either take extra classes/ get your master's, or you can take the Praxis. Is this nationwide? Because I have taught in three different states, I was required to take the Praxis, so I'm covered. People are freaking out here because they are finding that they are not "qualified" to do their job anymore. I am in a university town, and the graduates in ED. are having to go back to school in order to get a job. So, how about you?
