Jeffrey Villar, executive director of Connecticut Council for Education Reform, hopes to see legislation passed to enable a teacher certified in Massachusetts or New York to get a job in Connecticut without having to retake the state's tests or get another state certificate.
Other Northeastern states have such reciprocity agreements, Villar said, and he thinks it would be helpful, particularly for increasing the number of teachers in areas such as bilingual education. In addition, Villar said, CCER would like to see legislation that provides incentives - perhaps loan forgiveness arrangements - to attract and retain good teachers in struggling school districts.

Common Core Controversy in CT - CT Home Schooling Network

cthomeschoolnetwork.org [cached]

Jeffrey Villar, executive director of the Connecticut Council for Education Reform, said the public outcry against the Common Core is based not upon the validity of the standards themselves, but upon the process of implementation.
The Common Core State Standards were adopted on July 7, 2010, by the state Education Board. "What's happening is folks are mixing many different components of education reform and combining it all and injecting a good level of perhaps some level of misinformation to cause confusion," Villar said.
