Mandatory Teacher Education Training for Professors
I am petitioning for all professors to have mandatory teacher education training through the College of Education and take a series of tests in pedagogy, methodology, and content with a standard minimum score to pass. There is a rapid decline in the number of students who pursue a degree in the sciences, math, or engineering. The lack of effective communication and differentiated instruction of the professors are not very conducive to their students. With mandatory teacher education training and certification, the professors will take a greater interest in the success of their students, learn how to develop interpersonal relationships with students, and learn how to bridge the gap between what they know and what the student is trying to grasp.
