[ABANDONED] Ordinance on Universal Qualification

Greene: Sir, your draft!
Crawford: Thank you Thomas, you are relieved.


Ordinance on Universal Qualification

Category: Education and Creativity | Area of Effect: Education




The World Assembly,

Applauding member states' progress in affirming the education of youth
Imploring member states to continue raising qualified and capable educators as their nations see fit
Seeking with the passage of this ordinance to create a more interdependent, accountable system for qualifying potential educators
Concerned by the potential to bar educators looking to work internationally on the grounds of non-universal qualification

hereby,

I. Defines "educator" for the purpose of this ordinance as one enlisted by an established educational institution to fulfill any of the requirements for education outlined in GAR #80
II. Acknowledges all forms of certification for these educators under all member states as acceptable certification for universal education.
III. Holds that any specific certification to educate in any subject or skill level must be accepted to a parallel degree in other member states.
IV. Bars members states from refusing occupations to educators on the grounds that their certification is not universally accepted.



Crawford: It is good to be back, I find myself sucked back into the bureaucracy and I wish to have another go at this. I have had some issues in the past (referring to my A=440 draft) in justifying international legislature, but I do believe this to be a matter of international importance. If you will allow me to "game-theory" my own proposal before we begin throwing pens about the proposal room, I wish to counter an argument I've already devised.

I understand that this legislature may make it significantly easier for certified individuals who have been certified in a less than competitive or rigorous teaching environment to be universally accepted by other member states. However, you all must recall that member states still abide by GAR #80, and that a basic education is supported in all nations, and that all educators are likely to be at least somewhat truly qualified for their profession. In addition, as stated in the preamble, this ordinance strives to create a more, say, accountable system for educators internationally. Universal qualification allows for a heavier exchange of talented educators internationally, and therefore (over time) begins to terraform the educational environment across all member states.

That is all for now, thank you for your consideration.

This is nothing but definitions. Are you writing a proposal or an addendum to the dictionary?

Snark aside, frankly I disagree. Nonetheless, may I ask how you've come to your conclusion?

Compare your proposal with GA#146 "Recognising Achievements Act."

As it stands, illegal for a House of Cards violation in Article 1 ("requirements... outlined in GA#80").

OOC: Also, given that in some nations (using RL Finland as an example because I live here), to be allowed to teach in a school (primary, secondary, tertiary or quaternary education) you at minimum need a master's degree and pedagogic not sure what to call it, actually, "side-degree" doesn't sound quite right in English, but in any case proof of having passed a crapton of pedagogic courses and depending on what age group you'll be teaching, the right kind of psychological studies as well.

On the other hand, to be a teacher in a community college, in a craft and arts type of subject, all you need to do is have some pedagogic studies done, be understandable enough in another language besides Finnish (typically English or Swedish, depending on the part of Finland, though could also be Russian, in places near the eastern border), and know enough about what you're going to be teaching.

One kind of teaching licence does not let you teach in the other (easily anyway), so why should the teaching licence from some 3rd world country, where teacher basically needs to just know more about the subject that they're teaching, than their students (and may be a student themselves, still), make them applicable to teach in a university in a 1st world nation? Or any other such situation, like if in some nation only priests can be teachers, and they're teachers simply because they're priests, why should "being a priest" be qualification enough to teach in a whole other country with other religious systems and requirements for teachers? (And I can give IC examples too, if you don't like OOC facts. :P)

Coronavirus related. This too. And this. These are all jokes. This isn't. This is, again, but it's also the last one.
