With a significant number of teachers reaching retirement age, there will be a surplus of new teaching jobs available in addition to the positions available now.
Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) October 20, 2013
As per the article appearing on Yahoo News, the unemployment rate for those entering the field of elementary education is just 5%. This data notes that, although the employment rate may vary by region, the field of elementary education indicates overall promising growth. Additionally, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Occupational Outlook Handbook indicates that the job outlook through 2020 is expected to grow by 17%, with projected employment in the field to reach almost two million jobs.
The latest estimate of an increase in educational employment illustrates a job market that, according to the BLS and some economists, will continue to strengthen not only through the next year, but through the coming years. This forecast suggests a trend that will continue to be favorable with job prospects increasing in the South and West, which are expected to have a rapid increase in enrollment growth through 2020.
“Employers are urgently seeking Kindergarten, Elementary, and Special Education teachers throughout the country," said Harrison Barnes, Chief Executive Officer of Employment Research Institute, the parent company of EducationCrossing. "With a significant number of teachers reaching retirement age, there will be a surplus of new teaching jobs available in addition to the positions available now."
