Share Article

Two million new teachers will be hired throughout the country by 2008, and over 150,000 additional teachers will be needed to replace retiring educators. Prospective students who want to prepare for this challenging field can learn about distance-learning options through an article currently featured at Online-Education.net.

Students hoping to meet the nationwide call for approximately 2 million additional teachers by the year 2008 can learn how to prepare through distance learning in a new article on Online-Education.net, a one-stop source for students and prospective students exploring E-Learning.

A survey from The National Center for Education Statistics predicts that over 150,000 new teachers will be needed each year to replace retiring professionals and to meet increases in enrollment. The Online-Education.net article by Amelia Gray, "Students Become Teachers with Distance Learning," evaluates the range of distance-learning programs that help prepare elementary and high school teachers to fill these positions.

According to Gray's article, the overwhelming demand for new elementary and high school teachers has prompted the federal government to offer financial aid incentives for educators in special education, math and science, and foreign languages. The article details a range of online programs including:

  •     Teacher Education for Elementary Licensure
  •     Adult Education and Distance Learning
  •     Post-baccalaureate Teacher Preparation (preK-8)
  •     B.A. Interdisciplinary Studies (preK-8)
  •     Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership

Professor Wendy Croix, Ph.D., points out the hidden opportunities for education graduates: "While readily available jobs attract teaching students to the profession, newly minted teachers frequently receive housing supplements and tuition reimbursements as well. And they can live anywhere, since the teacher shortage is nationwide."

The Online-Education.net article is just one of many features providing newsworthy advice on online schools throughout the country. (http://online-education.net/resources/students-become-teachers.html)
