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.
Although there do not appear to be any state guidelines for alternate route programs, only programs run by colleges and universities have been authorized.
Encourage diversity of alternate route providers.
Hawaii should specifically authorize alternate route programs run by groups other than institutions of higher education. A good diversity of providers helps all programs, both university- and non-university-based, to improve. The state should also offer alternate routes without restriction on them with regard to subject, grade or geographic areas.
Hawaii had no comment on this goal.
