Guam - Chairperson of the Legislative Committee on Education Speaker Judi Won Pat has called for an oversight hearing on the Guam Educator Certification Office. Won Pat says she has received several concerns from school teachers regarding the process for them to be re-certified. The speaker says she is also interested in how the fairly new organization is working with the University of Guam, and wants to determine whether the responsibility should be given back to the Department of Education.
"If they feel that there is anything that needs to be done to amend the law to make it better for the teachers, then I think it would be important at that time to do so," said Won Pat.
The oversight hearing is scheduled for May 27 at 2pm in the Legislature's Public Hearing Room.
