School of Education
Michael Rosenberg, professor in the Department
of Special Education, will receive the 2008
Teaching Education Division Publication Award at the
Council of Exceptional Children convention in
Seattle in April. Rosenberg is one of five researchers who
will receive the award for an article
published in 2007 in Teacher Education and Special
Education. His article, "Getting Teachers Where
They're Needed Most: The Case for Licensure Reciprocity,"
assesses whether reciprocity among
states is effective in reducing teacher shortages.
Reciprocity refers to an agreement among member
states to accept another state's teacher preparation and
licensing process to the extent they are
comparable. Instead, the article argues for other
approaches to reduce the teacher shortage
including differential pay for those in low-income
districts, giving credit to teachers for their years
of service when they relocate to a new area and maintaining
their pension status. This is the third
time Rosenberg has earned the publication award.
