NYP: “State education officials plan to scrap a literacy exam given to prospective teachers and allow certification for some applicants who fail a performance-assessment test — moves that critics warned will weaken the pool of candidates.
The state Board of Regents will likely vote early next week on whether to ax the Academic Literacy Skills Test, one of four exams that teacher-wannabes have to pass for certification, officials said Monday.”

The story focuses on which sectors passed, …”48 percent of aspiring black teachers and 56 percent of prospective Hispanic educators passed” compared to 75% of whites.
