  • There is Always a Need for Educators
    An educator is one of the more recession resistent careers. Whether the economy is prospering or lagging, the public will always need qualified teachers and educators. Employment of education, training, and library occupations is projected to grow 8 percent from 2014 to 2024, about as fast as the average for all occupations. About 697,600 new jobs are projected to be added from 2014 to 2024. Growth in education, training, and library occupations is influenced by school enrollments and budgets.

    Go Further with a Graduate Degree
    Holding graduate degrees in education is essential to individuals who desire educational leadership and administration positions. Many schools require their teachers to either have a master's degree or work on earning one within a certain amount of time. Most schools have payscales that reward you for having a master's degree. If you don't have a bachelor degree in education and want to become an educator, a master's degree in the field can fulfill most schools' education requirements.

    NCATE Accreditation: Is it a Must?
    NCATE accreditation is certainly desirable. However, there are plenty of top ranked schools that don't have NCATE accreditation yet still offer excellent quality education programs. In fact, many schools without the NCATE accreditation offer programs that are specifically approved by their state's department of education. Your long-term plans should dictate the decision to choose a program with or without the NCATE accreditation. Licensure requirements and a possible move out of state are two important factors in this decision. >> Read more

    NCATE Accreditation

    NCATE accreditation responds to the public's expectation that colleges of education produce teachers and other school specialists who meet rigorous standards, and who can help students learn.

    Teacher candidates from NCATE-accredited institutions will be better prepared for new, more demanding initial licensing expectations in many states, and for board certification through the new National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. NCATE is working with the Council of Chief State School Officers and NBPTS to ensure that accreditation, licensing, and certification standards are compatible. Many states have reciprocity agreements based on graduation from NCATE-accredited schools, so that graduates from NCATE-accredited institutions will generally find it easier to apply for licensure when they move out of state.
