It’s time to serve your American Education System

You’ve already proven in your military career that it’s in your blood to serve. Now that you’re home, how can you continue to push yourself to your full potential while serving your country and driving real and positive change? By way of one possible answer, we at AU’s School of Education have a message for you: Your country’s education system needs you.

At American University, we know that our democracy simply cannot function at its highest level without passionate and dedicated leaders and teachers. Today, our country simply doesn’t have enough of them: According to the Learning Policy Institute, the United States faced a shortage of approximately 60,000 teachers in the 2015-2016 school year.

This is a moment when would-be teachers need to heed their calling, and act. We are here to help you step up and do just that.
