Extractions: (DOC) Seidel News Graduating with an education degree does not automatically create your teaching or administrator's certificate in Maryland. You must apply for certification. If you are offered a job before you have applied for certification, your new school district will often apply for your certificate on your behalf. But if a job offer isnt on the table or you plan to leave Maryland, you should apply for your certificate right after graduation. Preparing Your Packet You should send a complete packet of information to the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE). Your application packet should include: 1. Cover letter including your name, address, social security number, telephone number and the subject area(s) for which you want certification.

Extractions: "Teacher Certification Reconsidered: Stumbling for Quality." October 18, 2001 - The Abell Foundation just released "Teacher Certification Reconsidered: Stumbling for Quality." It argues that Maryland's teacher certification requirements should be loosened or eliminated because there is no credible evidence that they ensure quality. We agree. There is simply no good evidence that teacher certification produces demonstrable gains in student achievement. In fact, much of the research is embarrassingly deficient. A February 2001 report by the University of Washington Center for the Study of Teaching and Policy agrees: "There is no research that directly assesses what teachers learn in their pedagogical preparation and then evaluates the relationship of that pedagogical knowledge to student learning or teacher behavior." Taking the opposite view is the National Commission on Teaching and America's Future (NCTAF) led by Professor Linda Darling-Hammond. The Commission has been urging the states to adopt expanded certification requirements. Professor Darling-Hammond called the Abell Foundation's report a "stunning exercise in misrepresentation."
