Auditor: Minnesota Teacher Licensing System ‘Broken’

Teacher licensing in Minnesota is “confusing,” “broken” and in need of an overhaul, the Office of Legislative Auditor said Friday.

The system’s problems are partly to blame for the state’s teacher shortage, and the fact that the work is split between the Minnesota Board of Teaching and Minnesota Department of Education makes it difficult to hold anyone accountable for decisions, according to the auditor’s report.
