Kansas considers out-of-state teacher licenses

(AP) — The Kansas Department of Education wants to study a proposal to make it easier for out-of-state teachers to become licensed in Screen Shot 2013-07-10 at 2.28.06 PMKansas.

A national organization of state education agency officials issued a report listing 10 recommendations for how states could improve the teaching profession. One of those calls for allowing reciprocity across state lines.

That organization is now making grants available to states to study implementing the recommendations.

Kansas Education Commissioner Diane DeBacker says the education department is applying for one of those grants. She says the grant application would not commit the state to changing any of its licensing regulations.
