Does this mean that typically and normally that the art teachers in your
district need to have a full degree in regular education and art education as
well, or just enough credits to fulfill certification requirements, such as
may be done when teacher go back to school after attaining a ba degree in a
non-teaching field? Do they also need to student teach in both settings for
a full course and fulfill testing requirements for both teaching areas?
