Extractions: Twenty-nine Gwinnett County public school teachers recently received the highest professional credential in education: national board certification. The recognition, awarded by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, brings a level of prestige to teaching and the teacher. Teachers must complete a rigorous year of self-evaluation, including competency testing and critiques by their peers. "You can't get through national board certification and be the kind of teacher that just closes the door and doesn't pay attention to the rest of the learning community," said Barbara Kelley, chairwoman of the board of directors for the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. The process "forces a teacher to take a magnifying glass to their practice and to each of their students." A total of 380 Georgia teachers earned their national board certification this school year, bringing the state total to 815. The state has the sixth-highest number of new national board-certified educators in the country.

The Story Of State-Mandated Mentoring In Georgia to evaluate every new teacher for acceptance for state teacher certification. Theprogram was very high profile and gained national visibility. See georgia Dept http://www.teachermentors.com/MCenter Site/StateStories/Georgia.html
Extractions: Georgia - Return to the "What's Happening in the States?" Page - Updated March 14, 1998 Georgia The Georgia Beginning Teacher program started in , which makes it one of the first new teacher programs in the United States. Originally, Georgia's approach to new teacher programming emphasized summative beginning teacher assessment that was based on a very detailed set of effective teaching competencies called the "Teacher Performance Assessment Instrument". The program's purpose was to evaluate every new teacher for acceptance for state teacher certification. The program was very high profile and gained national visibility. See Georgia Dept. of Education. (1980). "Teacher Performance Assessment Instruments". Atlanta, GA: Georgia Dept. of Education. Georgia's system was borrowed and then adapted for use in Arizona. In , however, the State of Georgia discontinued the use of its program for making certification decisions. Part of the reason for halting the program was limited support by a new set of politicians who did not know what the program accomplished and did not approve the funding it took to support the Georgia program. Georgia still did provide money in the form of competitive grants to support pilot mentoring programs. The state still required the mentoring programs to use a state assessment instrument for assessing teacher competencies.
