Digital Publishing Corp. today announced the launch of BecomeATeacher.info, a new information portal providing comprehensive information resources for aspiring teachers. The new website (http://www.becomeateacher.info) contains information on the wide range of teaching specialties, as well as qualifications and certification requirements, financing options and guidance on career paths to various positions within the teaching profession.
BecomeATeacher.info is a single source of consolidated and authoritative facts and figures on the education industry, including the current and projected job outlook, earnings trends for various positions and an overview offering practical advice to aspiring teachers. In addition, the site aggregates detailed information on hundreds of education degree programs offered by both online and campus-based colleges and universities. Visitors can search for schools within their local area, compare various educational institutions and request free information.
The website includes dedicated pages on topical teaching specialties such as Math, Science and Special Education, as well as grade-level specialties including:
- Early Childhood
BecomeATeacher.info also provides detailed sections on the field of teaching English as a second language (ESL) and teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL), as well as Educational Leadership/Administration/Management
Each of the featured schools on BecomeATeacher.info offer online degree programs for aspiring teachers. A recent 93-page report on online education, conducted for and released by the Department of Education, concluded that "On average, students in online learning conditions performed better than those receiving face-to-face instruction."
Despite the current turbulent economy, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects solid job prospects across virtually all teaching fields through 2016. And the Obama Administration's American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) could have a big impact on job growth in the education sector. The ARRA earmarks $53.6 billion to states and school districts to prevent cost-cutting reductions, and has been projected to preserve as many as 574,000 education jobs that otherwise might have been victim of the economic downturn.
