Complete Your Elementary Education Online

Most K-12 teachers are often strongly encouraged to earn their Master’s Degree in Education within a few years of entering the field. Those who then move onto earn a doctorate prepare themselves for the top jobs in the field, including administrative or policy-making positions where they make the decisions that impact what and how students are taught.

Job Growth Outlook for PhDs in Elementary Education

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates about 17% job growth for K-12 teachers through 2020 – a pace that is as fast as average compared to all professions. While employment opportunities will vary depending on the location, the number of teachers is expected to increase due to lower teacher-student ratios and increases in enrollment.
