One of the hardest aspects of professional licenses is how dependent they are on the state that issued them. Teachers, for instance, cannot easily move from state to state without having to apply for the new state's teaching license. This effectively prevents them from transferring positions and living wherever they want - or need to be. It also subjects them to several different standards of professionalism and conduct when they do hold more than one state teaching license. This can be overwhelming for teachers who have been accused of violating these standards in one state that were not rules in another state they are licensed in.
If you or someone you love holds multiple state teaching licenses and is accused of violating conduct in one state that would not be considered a violation in another state they hold a license in; it is imperative to work with a professional license defense team. Call the Lento Law Firm Team today.
Kansas is Joining the Teaching Compact
Kansas announced in April 2023 that they would be joining the Interstate Teacher Mobility Compact, which will make hiring teachers from other states much easier. This new compact is backed by the Department of Defense in an effort to make it easier for military personnel and their spouses to move around the country and continue to teach. If an additional six states join the compact, it could be operational in about a year or two.
Teaching isn't the first profession to adopt a compact like this. Almost 48 states are part of the Enhanced Nursing License Compact, which allows licensed nurses to easily work in states that are part of the compact without getting a whole new license. It also provides specific conduct standards that the nurses must follow to stay in good favor with the nursing boards. If the teaching compact does the same, it will ensure that teachers are not being accused of superfluous issues.
