Missouri State Board of Education has Approved new Standards for Teacher Preparation Programs

The Missouri State Board of Education has approved new standards for teacher preparation programs. The new policy sets out standards for preparing future teachers and the requirements students must meet to earn their educator’s certificate. New Haven Superintendant Kyle Kruse attended the meeting yesterday and says the new standards should only affect local schools by providing them with better teachers. Officials have been working on the policy and say it will allow annual reviews of performance data for the first time. Kruse says the State Board of Education also discussed replacing the praxis test educators need to pass in order to become certified and replace it with a better, more comprehensive test. The State Board of Education approved the standards on Tuesday November 27, 2012. They will take effect on March 30, 2013.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

1 week 2 days ago

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
