blog details: It is now easier than ever to transition to a career teaching social studies in Pennsylvania! The Pennsylvania Department of Education has approved American Board to begin certifying social studies teachers for grades 7-12. In Pennsylvania, American Board operates in partnership with Point Park University, so the approval from PDE applies to both organizations
What sparked this change? Like most states, Pennsylvania is experiencing a teacher shortage. In fact, a recent study found teachers on emergency permits filled more positions than newly certified teachers, for the first time in state history. Additionally, “the study found staffing challenges in Pennsylvania appear, in large part, due to a sharp decline in people graduating with a teaching degree.” The drop in college students pursuing a teaching degree makes alternative routes to teacher certification more necessary than ever.
