Lawmakers move to close licensing 'loophole,' critics say it will mean less teacher diversity


Minnesota House Democrats want to close what they say is a loophole in the state’s new teacher licensing system, but opponents argue the result will be a less diverse workforce of educators.

State Rep. Mary Kunesh-Podein, DFL-New Brighton, is chief sponsor of a bill that would eliminate one of the more contentious pieces of the licensing overhaul approved by the Legislature in 2017. The so-called loophole allows teachers without formal training to work their way up to a full teaching license.
