Will their recommendation for possible higher entrance requirements and an exam to enter the profession result in the same media coverage and resultant influence on policy across the country? I don't think that we will see the same media coverage, but I do think that it will, over time, influence the certification process. Universities and policy makers for teacher certification will be slower to respond than state legislators and state education systems to the change, but the AFT decision has opened the door for the conversations to begin. As I asked yesterday, when and how will the NEA respond? What do practicing and prospective teachers think about this potential change?
