Education Jobs By State

Education Jobs by State

If you are in search of an education job, it may be tough to narrow down the results. To help make the search a little easier, we've categorized education jobs by state. For each state, we have collected some available statistics, up-to-date information on the state's current learning initiatives, as well as a few examples of inspiring school districts who are effectively helping their students. And, of course, each page will list available jobs in the state. 

 

Statistics

According to the Nation Center for Education Statistics, there were 98,176 public schools in the United States as of the 2014-15 school year. That's a lot of job opportunities! 

 

Learning Initiatives

Nationwide, many schools have been making efforts to personalize learning, trying to best meet the needs of each individual student. The U.S. Department of Education also lists initiatives and projects the department is working on. These include funding and support for innovation in schools, early learning prioritization, and helping school districts make the most of the resources they have. Education Dive highlights 6 trends that may be on the rise in K12 education for 2018. One such trend is a shift in assessment. Schools will be given more flexibility when it comes to required testing and how many days they use. Another is personalized professional development for teachers, in which school districts may give teacher opportunities to get micro-credentials online, and eventually other choices. Makerspaces continue to be a growing trend to help kids get hands-on learning experience, as well as flexible class furniture and spaces.  Many changes are happening in education across all states, but check out our state teaching job pages below for more state-specific information.
