Jobs in Education Administration tallied an additional 445,000 that same year. A career in education is one of the most rewarding, fulfilling professional tracks an individual can pursue.
According to an article released by The Washington Post, students taught by former-military teachers are ""making greater gains in reading than peers taught by teachers with similar classroom experience. In math, students in [Military Veteran-lead] classrooms outperformed those in other classes -- even when the other teacher had more years under his belt.""

Educators are entrusted with the growth and development of our nation's children, and your experiences are a valuable component to their development. Education is a highly specialized field, and entry demands a high level of qualification and expertise. Frequently, a bachelor's degree in education or a related field is a bare minimum requirement for teaching positions in most areas. Furthermore, every public school district in America has a licensing/certification requirement for teachers and classroom instructors. Certification standards can vary by state and grade level.
When it comes to filling administrative positions, remember that school districts will be looking for the cream of the crop, and if you don't have an appropriate education degree, it will be difficult to even get your foot in the door, much less thrive and work your way up the organizational ladder. Jobs in education administration require a minimum of a Master's Degree and proven success in the classroom.
