Gloria Jackson confirms that they currently have nine non-certified teachers in elementary schools in the District, but that she expects that number to go down…

While acknowledging that it would be ideal to have certified teachers, Jackson says they are confident in the non-certified teachers who are teaching…

“They have degrees and experience with children and the district has done some professional development with them, and they are in our elementary schools and we are confident in the work that are doing.”
