Riley to receive suggestions on improving teaching

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A commission appointed by Gov. Bob Riley has recommended that Alabama establish a system where teachers can advance in their careers without having to leave the classroom for an administrative post.

The Governor's Commission on Quality Teaching recommended a system where teachers advance to higher levels by meeting certain education and experience requirements.

Each level would come with additional responsibilities for mentoring and leading other teachers.

The commission chair, former national teacher of the year Betsy Rogers of Birmingham, said currently if teachers want to advance in their careers financially or professionally they have to go into administration or leave the teaching profession.
