A. Zhang: We Need Chinese Teachers! (T4)

1,041
-1

Published on

This panel will address issues related to Chinese teacher preparation and liscensure in the United States. Across the nation, states vary as to how bilingual teachers and Chinese language teachers are certified to teach in the public schools. While teacher preparation programs are usually housed in institutes of higher education, some states have alternative programs for certification. As Chinese language programs expand, so will the need for highly qualified Chinese teachers. This panel of experts will speak to the issues, policies, challenges, and procedures related to the certification of Chinese teachers.
