Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels signed into law rules for teacher licensing that emphasize subject expertise over teaching methods. The rules go into effect July 31 and will require new teachers for grades 5-12 to major in their chosen subject area and minor in education. The regulations also include changes to make it easier for career-changers to earn teaching licenses and for existing teachers to be re-licensed or change subjects by passing content exams.
