On the January "Start a new post" the following was posted by Anonymouses:
"I am confused. What is the Teacher residency program? I looked at this job description and the quakifications andhonestly I thought it was a misprint at first.
"Eligibility Requirements: -Must not have (or be earning) a BA or MA in an education program that leads to certification. -Must not have (or be earning) teaching certification in any state. -Must not be enrolled in or have completed another alternate route certification program. -Must not currently work as a full-time teacher for Pittsburgh Public Schools. Long-term substitutes and paraprofessionals are still eligible for the program. -Must be able to pass background investigation. -Must meet subject area requirements for Pennsylvania."
Thats Scary, Not to be parnoid but the district in year or two will replacing teachers, with their version of teachers. Only the State should be able to certify teachers. The programs should be run by universities not these crack pots.
Next year a lot of math teachers will be focused and replaced by PPS trained teachers.
Of course John Tarka got dupped again"
