According to projections from the National Employment Matrix,
prospects for individuals holding a Master of Science in Education
are expected to be favorable, especially for those students that
choose Math and Science. Most job openings will result from the
need to replace the large number of “Baby Boomer” teachers who are
expected to retire between 2006 - 2016.
