Want more proof that the powers that be in the Utah Legislature are trying to ruin public education and get (more of) that money into the pockets of their cronies?
11 This bill:
12 ▸ requires the State Board of Education to make certain rules regarding administrative
13 or supervisory licensing; and
14 ▸ makes technical changes
26 (1) A local school board or charter school governing board may request, and the [
Board of Education] board may grant, a letter of authorization permitting a person with
28 outstanding professional qualifications to serve in any position that requires a person to hold an
29 administrative/supervisory license or certificate, including principal, assistant principal,
30 associate principal, vice principal, assistant superintendent, administrative assistant, director,
31 specialist, or other district position.
(c) The board may not require that an applicant described in Subsection (3)(a):
43 (i) have a particular graduate degree;
44 (ii) hold a teaching license;
45 (iii) complete an education leadership graduate program;
46 (iv) obtain a professional recommendation solely from a school with an approved
47 preparation program; or
48 (v) have experience in an education field.
So, if this bill passes, the person running your local school, making decisions that effect your children, identifying good teaching and bad teaching, allocating resources, implementing rewards and consequences, hiring, firing, approving and rejecting educational programs and the million other decisions that require an understand of how students think, act and learn will not need to have any educational experience at all.
Yup. ‘Cause managing a business with a hundred adult employees that can be fired is exactly like running a Junior High School. Yup. Uh huh.
