Guam - Close to 50 Department of Education teachers may be terminated if they don't pass the Praxis Exam before December 1. According to Guam Education Board member Joe San Agustin, DOE must step in and request that the Guam Education Certification Commission allow for composite scores to be accepted as teachers appear to be short only points in individual reading, writing, and math exams.
San Agustin says this may jeopardize DOE if these teachers cannot be replaced. He's especially concerned as other teachers may be considering the early-out retirement plan.
