The Board of regents will decide this week whether to expand the list of classrooms where education majors can do their student teaching. Seniors at Iowa’s three public universities can’t student teach at private schools under current rules, because some of the parochial schools aren’t accredited, and don’t have certified teachers. A recent Supreme Court ruling clears the way for student teachers in private schools as long as they’re accredited, and specifies they can teach only non-religious subjects. Private colleges in Iowa don’t have the restriction on their education majors. The Regents me Tuesday through Thursday at the Iowa School for the Deaf in Council Bluffs.
