impact of certification

Postby aahz » 07 May 2012, 23:55

It seems that laws in the United States are demanding that students seeking to go to American colleges have to go through a certificated school now. This is impacting not just Taiwan, but also many American schools. A certain percentage of the teachers have to be credentialed/certificated by acceptable standards (depending on the state).

While I have a hard time finding newspaper articles or topics discussing this, it seems like this is heavily discussed and is a big issue facing many of the Taiwanese schools now. Since the major goal of most students in Taiwan is to go to an American school, this seems like it could become a big issue.

As a teacher who is working in Taiwan, I don't suppose anyone knows more about this issue? How will this impact teaching as a whole? Is it a major worry in the field, or am I just perceiving what is a big worry at most of the schools I've worked at and applying it to the whole situation?
