States Consider an Interstate Licensing Compact for Teachers

At least 10 states plan to consider joining an interstate licensing compact for teachers; the compact enables teachers in states that join to get certified more easily in other member states. According to Marketplace on February 2, the Department of Defense proposed the compact because people in the military move frequently, and their spouses struggle to find teaching jobs in new places. Adam Diersing, a policy analyst with the Council of State Governments, works with states to develop compact agreements; he sees these agreements as a way to help meet teacher demand.
