Ridgewood NJ, since September New Jersey’s teachers union has been warning of teacher shortages being exacerbated by the COVID pandemic. Faced with a teacher shortage , NJ lawmakers are considering having the state recognize out-of-state teaching certificates to make recruiting easier for school districts.

A bill has been advanced by both the Senate and Assembly education committees that would grant reciprocity for out-of-state licenses. It awaits votes by the full Legislature, which could conceivably come in January but won’t necessarily be scheduled.

The key question is will reciprocity for out-of-state teacher licenses will move forward  the current trend of remote learning and increase its adoption and acceptance by students , taxpayers and educators?
