10 states mulling cross-border regulations to tackle teacher shortages

DENVER (AP) – Colorado lawmakers, along with lawmakers in nine other states, have proposed a bill to eliminate the requirement for teachers to relicense when they move across state lines to address the shortage of teachers.

The Interstate Teacher Mobility Compact will enable efficient use of compact member teaching licenses by eliminating the need to take tests and pay fees to re-license in different states.

The agreement will not enter into force until 10 states pass their bill and join it. The Education Committee of the Colorado House of Representatives voted nine to two to move the bill in a hearing on Wednesday.
