Kansas Shoots Down Teacher Technology Requirement

While accepting many elements of an education reform package proposed by Republican leaders, the Kansas House of Representatives rejected the “Teaching Technology Act” in late February. The proposal would have mandated that universities offering teaching degrees certify that graduating teachers are capable of integrating computers and other technology into classroom education.

The proposal failed on a 64-25 vote when some legislators said the bill’s definition of “technology” was too broad and might create unintended requirements.
