Stiffer federal requirements didn't stop Illinois from making some teaching standards easier.

Illinois passed a bill last month that eliminates the need for out-of-state teachers to pass a basic-skills test. The new law also eases some certification requirements for new teachers who have been teaching for fewer than four years.

The changes were made despite the federal government's No Child Left Behind law. Those rules were intended to help put a highly qualified teacher in every classroom by 2006.
