Under the Mississippi Education Reform Act of 1982, the Commission on Teacher and Administrator Education Certification and Licensure and Development was created (State, 2002, 1). The licensing process, levels of licensure, and routes to licensure in Mississippi are complex and vary depending on the type of teaching license and certification sought by educators. For example, certification requirements vary depending on subjects taught or types of students (i.e. special education). However, there is a standard educator license approved program route for educators in the state of Mississippi. This route grants the teacher a standard educator license, of which there are four classes. These classes and their requirements are demonstrated in the chart below:
