NEA will survey state alternate certification programs to assess how educators are being trained and supported to be successful in the classroom.  The results of the survey will be published in existing NEA publications.

Rationale/Background

NEA Resolution G-3 states that alternative licensure programs must be equal in rigor and focus, and based on quality teaching standard. Alternative programs must include local Board of Education support and not be used just to have someone in front of children.
