ABCTE, commonly referred to as the "Any Body Can Teach Everything" certification process, is raising its ugly head in Oklahoma. This is a total lack of respect for our profession and is a slap in the face to our quality teachers across our state.
According to the respected Education Week, Oklahoma teachers are ranked 7th in the nation when it comes to teacher quality. We have a very good process for alternative certification. Why would we want to diminish our standards?
