The Iowa Board of Educational Examiners has created a new military exchange license for veterans and spouses. The license permits qualified veterans and their spouses to teach for a maximum of three years without being required to take additional educational classes. This contrasts with the 70 percent of out-of-state applicants who are typically required to complete additional coursework before being granted a license. The military exchange license also costs $85 instead of the usual $210. After the initial three-year period, the military exchange license can be converted to the state's traditional teaching license.
