Iowa Mulls Licensing Student Teachers

See all posts

The Iowa Board of Educational Examiners has floated the novel but silly idea of requiring that student teachers in Iowa be licensed. Apparently there has been a sizeable increase in the number of incidents of misconduct by student teachers, with violations ranging from drinking with students to inappropriate sexual relationships. Skeptics wonder if a licensing will actually prevent any of this from happening. But hey, if it works maybe we can start licensing our teenagers to keep them from drinking.
