The Legislature hereby finds and declares that in order to more fully provide for a thorough and efficient system of free schools within the state it is necessary to establish an educators' professional standards board. The board will be responsible for governing the education profession, including the establishment of standards for entering the education profession, and remaining a member of the education profession. The board shall also establish standards for institutions of higher education engaged in teacher preparation programs.
