Hey all, In my last district, I decided not to do BTSA. There weren't any consequences that I knew of. When I started my second job, I took the CLAD testing (all 8 hours of it), and am one test short of finishing the entire sequence. I'll probably sign up for the December test, if anything to put it behind me and on my resume. However, I am wondering about this BTSA thing. How serious is this? Should I even bother? Is it bad for your career, or likely to destroy it completely? I know that BTSA is required for a CLEAR credential, but frankly, I might leave the profession in 1 - 2 years, and I wonder if the investment is worthwhile. They still haven't filled a math teacher position at the H.S. I work at, so I suppose I'm safe until the end of the year. But I've combed google, I've combed the boards, and I've got nothing. What happens to the people who don't go? Is this a bluff, or should we take this seriously? Honest accounts, please, the more anecdotal the better.
