Outlook

Growth in this occupation will about as fast as average. Growth will occur as there are more high school students and the teacher-student ratio declines. The growth rate also varies by area of the country. States in the South and West will have a large increase in the number of students. However, states in the Northeast and Midwest may actually have fewer students. Budget cuts may slow growth.

Many job openings will occur as teachers retire. Job prospects may also be better for teachers who specialize in math, science, or special education.
