Teach for America and other programs have been pushing for alternative teacher licensing throughout the US during the past decade. Now, the Minnesota Senate has passed a bill that focuses on attracting mid-career professionals who want to teach; recent college grads who want to teach but haven’t earned traditional teaching credentials (this would be the “Teach for America” set); and teachers currently licensed in another state who want to teach in Minnesota.

MPR has released two articles that delve more fully into the legislation, and you can access those articles here: Minn. Senate passes alternative teacher licensing, and here: FAQ: Minn.’s alternative teaching licensure legislation.
