[Xmca-l] Re: Fwd: The Problem With the GRE



See the last paragraph of the article.
NY state has -- as of a few months ago -- a mandate for the whole state
that all who enter schools of education for a masters degree must first
take the GRE.
Here we are all fighting hard against this -- it was not decided by
professors of education.  And I have a steady stream of students n my
office who are literally crying about it -- they have initial
certifications to teach and have been teaching already but will loose these
certifications without their masters degree.  But we still need to get the
word out that this happened, I see.
