The Education Job Market: How Does It Compare to Your Job Market?
Welcome to the Career Corner! I'm BJ Bryant and as the Executive Director of the American Association for Employment in Education, it is exciting to be a partner with Agent K-12 to discuss the issues of careers in education and of employment in the teaching profession.
Our association has researched educator supply and demand for the past 30 years. In 2006, we continued to see a steady, positive increase in the demand for education candidates. Certainly, in fields like special education, math, and science, there are shortages of educators around the country. However, we know that there are great differences depending upon the teaching field and the region of the country. Even one state can have several different job markets within its boundaries. Yet, we all know that the job market comes down to the individual and to the school system. What are you seeing in your job market? BJ
