Expanding the Pool of Teachers Policy
The state should provide an alternate route that is free from regulatory obstacles that limit its usage and providers.
California does not limit the usage or providers of its alternate routes.
California is commended for having no restrictions on the usage of its alternate routes with regard to subject, grade or geographic areas.
Coursework is outlined in clock hours, and programs are run by both institutions of higher education and local districts. The state is commended for structuring its programs to allow a diversity of providers. A good diversity of providers helps all programs, both university- and non-university-based, to improve.
California recognized the factual accuracy of this analysis.
