A New York state court has thrown out rules that would have let some charter schools certify their own teachers.
Only the state education commissioner and the board of regents can set teacher-qualification standards, the court said.
The ruling last month voids an alternative-certification process approved by the State University of New York Charter Schools Committee last October.
Charter advocates had sought the rules to help ease staffing shortages. Opponents said they would put unqualified individuals in charge of classrooms.
