In order to obtain permanent K12 license for Connecticut the Dept of Ed is requiring that I retake courses that I already took to get my Masters in Canada at a well ranked university. I am currently teaching full time for the state. Although my school has furnished detailed transcripts, the WES (World Education Services) evaluators will not read these transcripts or do any investigation into their validity on their own. Basically, they won't make any comment whatsoever, nor can you get anyone on the phone--a P.O. Box type organization, highly NOT recommended. The State says they can't make any determinations without WES (or some agency evaluation). Any ideas on how to cut red tape and avoid wasting $ on retaking basic courses? Thx!
