Can I ask a question about california certification - is it true that other states really like california's certification process and that is a valuable hiring qualification - a block teacher of mine here in San Diego stated that Mass. was stealing from california teachers offering them $20,000 on their school loans if california teachers worked for them. Has anyone heard of this? Just curious if anyone has heard of this.
