Job prospects for education administrators look good. The U.S. Department of Labor reports that between 2006 and 2016, many Baby Boomers will be retiring from school administrative positions—as we have begun to see in our districts already. Additionally, it predicts that the number of school leadership positions will increase as schools and their leaders begin to shoulder more responsibility for monitoring student achievement.
Our own area of the country offers a particular advantage. The enrollment of school-age children is expected to grow more briskly in the U.S. South than elsewhere. Throughout the country, administrators will likely continue to be in high demand.
Many teachers feel called to move into school leadership; they are eager to earn higher certification and to fill the upcoming vacancies. Perhaps like you, they also want to prepare for their new leadership roles alongside other people of faith.
The Master of Education in Educational Leadership (M.Ed.) is designed for experienced educators interested in advancing their careers with a leadership or administrative role in the K-12 public or private school system.
