A case study examines the experiences of six teachers who have been candidates for certification by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS). Teachers needed specific kinds of support from the NBPTS, their school districts, and county-organized support groups, which were not fully met. Needs of minority candidates, in particular, are unfulfilled, leading to an inequity in the certification rates of minority candidates.
