Three Model Bills to Reform Education Licensure

The following press release was issued by the National Association of Scholars 
as part of a joint project.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE‍

New York, NY; October 12, 2022 – The National Association of Scholars, 
California Policy Center, Californians for Equal Rights Foundation, Goldwater 
Institute, The James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal, the John Locke 
Foundation, the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs, The Palm Beach Freedom 
Institute, and the Washington Policy Center are jointly releasing the Model 
Education Licensure Code ( 
https://cplaction.com/index.php?page=acymailing_front&ctrl=fronturl&task=click&urlid=176&userid=3072&mailid=99&noheader=1 ).

The Model Education Licensure Code provides three model bills state policymakers 
can use to reform education schools and the education licensure process—the 
Education Licensure Nondiscrimination Act ( 
https://cplaction.com/index.php?page=acymailing_front&ctrl=fronturl&task=click&urlid=177&userid=3072&mailid=99&noheader=1 ), the Education Licensure Review Act ( https://cplaction.com/index.php?page=acymailing_front&ctrl=fronturl&task=click&urlid=178&userid=3072&mailid=99&noheader=1 ), and the Education Licensure Certificate Act ( https://cplaction.com/index.php?page=acymailing_front&ctrl=fronturl&task=click&urlid=179&userid=3072&mailid=99&noheader=1 ).

Education reformers must include education schools and education licensure in 
their reform agenda,” stated David Randall, National Association of Scholars 
Director of Research. “Radical activists use education schools and licensure 
requirements as their central means to gain power over America’s classrooms.”

Education reformers must include education schools and education licensure in 
their reform agenda,” stated David Randall, National Association of Scholars 
Director of Research. “Radical activists use education schools and licensure 
requirements as their central means to gain power over America’s classrooms.”

Activists long ago seized control of education schools and began to insert ever 
more radical ideology and pedagogy into teacher training. The radicalized 
education schools propagandize teachers and screen out would-be teachers who 
refuse to acquiesce to the schools’ political demands.

“The radical activists also use education licensure requirements to force 
teachers and education administrators to receive degrees from education 
schools,” said Brandon Dutcher, Senior Vice President of the Oklahoma Council of 
Public Affairs.

This requirement ensures that our schools’ education administrators and teachers 
are committed to an ideology not shared by many Americans. More recently, states 
such as Illinois ( 
https://cplaction.com/index.php?page=acymailing_front&ctrl=fronturl&task=click&urlid=180&userid=3072&mailid=99&noheader=1 ) and Minnesota ( https://cplaction.com/index.php?page=acymailing_front&ctrl=fronturl&task=click&urlid=181&userid=3072&mailid=99&noheader=1 ) have moved to impose explicitly politicized education licensure requirements. The body of teachers indoctrinated by politicized education schools and licensure requirements sabotage education reform laws wherever they can.

“Education reform cannot succeed so long as the radical education establishment 
controls the education of our teachers,” added Martin Center President Jenna 
Robinson. “Policymakers in each state should adapt these model bills to forward 
education reform most effectively.”

The three model bills work together to eliminate the radical establishment’s 
power to select America’s teachers.
* The Education Licensure Nondiscrimination Act forbids a broad range of the 
different means that activists use to politicize the education of our teachers.

* The Education Licensure Review Act gives state policymakers the power to veto 
politicized licensure requirements imposed by state education department 
bureaucrats.

* The Education Licensure Certificate Act, building on initial work done by 
states such as Arizona ( 
https://cplaction.com/index.php?page=acymailing_front&ctrl=fronturl&task=click&urlid=182&userid=3072&mailid=99&noheader=1 ), establishes a standard path toward licensure that bypasses requirements for an undergraduate degree and minimizes education-school requirements.

“These three reforms make it possible for a new generation of liberty-minded 
teachers to enter the classroom,” said Dr. Terry Stoops, the Director of the 
Center for Effective Education at the John Locke Foundation.“This new generation 
will support education reform policy with a good heart.
