Measure allows professors to teach at high schools

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Gov. Bill Haslam has signed a measure that allows college professors to teach high school courses.

The measure allows the Department of Education to issue a teaching license in grades nine through twelve to individuals who have taught as full-time faculty members or adjunct faculty members at two-year and four-year post-secondary institutions.

A full-time faculty member has to have taught at least two years, and an adjunct professor is required to have a minimum of three years.

The legislation passed the Senate 19-13, and was approved 62-28 in the House.
