About the book:

Upcoming retirements combined with growing enrollments mean 2 million new teachers will be needed in the coming decade. Coupled with the demands of the No Child Left Behind Act and high turnover, especially in troubled high-poverty schools, the teaching profession faces daunting challenges.

The U.S. News Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Teacher, from the education experts at U.S. News & World Report, offers a complete overview of the turmoil in the profession and the spread of reforms designed to attract the best and brightest to teaching-and to encourage them stay. The guide also provides detailed information about how to choose the right school of education, the many new alternative routes into the classroom, and how to pay for it all.

This informative and helpful guide features:
- An overview of what's wrong with teaching-and how it's being fixed
- How to pick an education program
- Where to find the money to pay for your degree
- Profiles by U.S. News reporters of teachers at different kinds of schools (inner city, suburban, rural, public, private) highlighting how they became teachers and what their job is really like on a day-to-day basis
- A state-by-state and city-by-city overview of teacher salaries
- A detailed directory of graduate schools of education
