Was that supposed to read:
They also created a database of names here of teachers who had THEIR credentials revoked or suspended last year.

The Committee of Credentials (COC) of the CTC, whose stated purpose is to inspire, educate and protect the students of California, reviews the allegations and may recommend to the Commission adverse action against an existing credential or an application for a credential that a teacher or administrator has not yet received. A person may apply for a credential and never receive it, thus "the" is what I meant to say, not "their."
