Concerns with new licensure practices.
We are facing a significant shortage of math teachers throughout the Commonwealth. In reading the changes, the only oportunity for math “relief” is the possibility for a Teach for America license. Otherwise, it appears that the changes make the math content tougher to access additional endorsements. While I understand the need for maintaining the integrity of the license, I would like to see some alternate pathways for licensure, especially in the area of mathematics/Algebra.
