Senate sends teacher testing bill to Gov. Dayton

Email

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Senate has sent Gov. Mark Dayton a bill requiring teachers to pass a skills test.

The bill requires Minnesota teachers to pass a basic skills test in reading, writing and math before they receive a teaching license. Current law allows licensed teachers to take and retake the test for up to three years. The bill would also require all out-of-state teaching license applicants to pass the test.
