Latest News:

According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook from the United States Department of Labor

  • Special Education Teachers -

    Demand for special education services and teachers should rise as children with disabilities are increasingly being identified earlier and enrolled into special education programs.

  • Elementary Education -

    The number of students enrolling in public kindergarten and elementary schools is expected to increase over the coming decade, and the number of classes needed to accommodate these students should rise. As a result, more teachers will be needed to teach public kindergarten and elementary school students.

  • Math and Science Teachers -

    Employment of high school teachers is projected to grow 8 percent from 2016 to 2026. From 2016 to 2026, a significant number of older teachers will reach retirement age. Their retirement will create job openings for new teachers.
