Teacher Credentials
This shows the percentage of teachers who have not met the state requirements for full or temporary teaching certificates as reported by the state. While teachers without certificates may have industry or educational experience that contributes to the classroom, they may be unprepared for the challenges of classroom instruction. Furthermore, a high percentage of teachers without teaching certificates may indicate that a school has difficulty attracting and retaining qualified teachers.
