Military Affiliation and Educator Preparation

With hundreds of new enrollments each year, education and teacher preparation has historically been and remains amongst the most popular fields for military-connected individuals. Transitioning Veterans, Active duty service members, and dependents continuously take formal steps toward becoming a teacher. As educator preparation programs commit to addressing national staffing shortages with innovation and creativity, many do so in close proximity to military installations and a pipeline of service-minded individuals.  This TAG aims to highlight longstanding connections between the military and education as well as cultivate new opportunities between the two.
