Rezension: During my twenty-seven years with the Department, I worked with thirty colleges and universities to help them prepare for the state's review of their licensure programs. Under Dr. Stotsky's leadership, we were able to put into practice many of the long-needed changes in teacher preparation and licensing that she discusses in An Empty Curriculum: The Need to Reform Teacher Licensing Regulations and Tests. These little 'miracles' all contributed to the larger one-the remarkable and sustained increase in student achievement among all demographic groups in Massachusetts since 2005. -- Margaret L. Cassidy, formerly with the Office of Educator Preparation and Quality, Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Sandra Stotsky has done a great service to this country as well as Massachusetts in leading the effort to strengthen teacher training and assessment in order to address the provisions of the Education Reform Act. Our students' success in Massachusetts was due in large part to the work of classroom teachers. Assuring that those teachers have proper content knowledge and strong academic backgrounds to teach their subject, as her book details, proved invaluable. -- David Driscoll, former Commissioner of Education, Commonwealth of Massachusetts Although it is difficult to find a lucid discussion of the design, development, and implementation of teacher licensing tests in available sources, Sandra Stotsky has done a wonderful job of articulating the thinking that occurred at each phase of the development or revision of the subject area tests she was responsible for in Massachusetts. She explains the various professional views of the educators and policy makers with whom she engaged in her efforts to ensure that prospective teachers brought a strong academic background to their first teaching experiences. Stotsky's book is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding how the licensure regulations and teacher testing programs she developed contributed to the "Massachusetts education miracle." Her book should also be read by those seeking to create a high quality state education system because it clarifies an important component-teacher licensing tests-that is often overlooked in education reform strategies. -- William Phillip Gorth, PhD, cofounder and former president of National Evaluation Systems, Inc. In her new book, An Empty Curriculum: The Need to Reform Teacher Licensing Regulations and Tests, Sandra Stotsky, professor emerita of education at the University of Arkansas, offers a tested model of teacher knowledge, explains why it's not being used, and describes strategies for overcoming the education establishment's resistance. Stotsky's credentials for this task are impressive: in her role as senior associate commissioner at the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education from 1999 to 2003, she oversaw complete revisions of the state's pre-K-12 standards as well as its teacher-licensure standards. Until these standards were replaced by the Common Core in 2010, Massachusetts ranked first among the states in educational achievement. -- Mary Grabar, PhD, resident fellow at the Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization in Clinton, New York City Journal
