humboldt state has one of CA's busiest teacher education programs
ucsh, cal state hayward, also produces a lot of teachers
in higher grades a subject-specific degree or passage of subject nte is required, plus the fifth year
we also had to do another quarter (mainstreaming, tech in classroom and health---dang, my memory! i'm surprised) to earn the "clear"
they then made me do four four semester unit classes about half way into my career to get a clad---CA language arts development (bics and calps, basic intercommunication skills and i-forget) about half way into my career, no one ever used it, the fad immediately faded away
i had to pay for all these classes but they automatically moved me over columns on the pay scale
the classes, by the way, were a joke, i did clad in front of the tv, it was essentially just a lot of paper work for a guy like me
my check is made out by contra costa county supt of schools, but of course most the money comes from the stateare they state employees?
