Although we offer a physics degree and produce physics graduates who mainly go to graduate school, there's currently no degree program that prepares physics teachers. Currently however, there's a statewide effort to standardize a curriculum for physics education degree and the Arkansas Department of Education is in the process of developing a new physics educator license and is currently working to adopt a new standard Praxis test that will be aligned with the new physics educator license. Along side these efforts, at Southern Arkansas University we are having a discussion to build on the currently successful teacher in mathematics preparation program and establish a physics education program by following the mathematics model. PhysTEC membership will allow us to do this right and above everything else be on the loop.
