    have to fill in what is known as a BEDS form (Basic Educational Data System, I believe) for the state's education department.
    There is a section that requires a teacher to certify whether s/he is "highly qualified" for the teaching job s/he currently has, based on education and educational status (master's degree &/or certification). The results are reported online for every school district and believe me, it's taken very seriously.
    I'm still waiting for every governor/state legislator/congressperson (etc., etc., and so forth) to have to certify the same.
