Iowa will soon begin implementing its new testing requirements for people seeking to be licensed to teach in the state.

A legislative panel cleared the way for the state Department of Education to begin implementing on January 2nd new rules for teacher preparedness tests.

The rules require candidates to score above the 25th percentile, which means test takers must be in the top 75 percent nationwide.

It's all part of a law that went into effect in July. It's been delayed to accommodate candidates completing student teaching in the fall.

Some critics say they want to delay the changes because it would be unfair to seniors at public and private schools who are just about to finish their training.
