Due to the overwhelming number of requests for training dollars, Workforce Alliance ended accepting scholarship applications at 5 p.m. on Friday, August 30, 2013. Workforce Alliance may be able to accept scholarship applications again after November 15, 2013. We will post updated information on this page when it is available.
I have a Bachelor's degree and I can't find a decent job. I have a BSED in Elementary Education and where I live its a near impossible field to get into. I'm thinking of going back to school for my Masters in Reading and a certification as a Reading Instructor. Of course that will mean a $20,000 loan that I may not be able to pay on. There is just nothing out there. Its pretty dim.

Teacher hurdles are not worth it for the majority of people.
There's no rational explanation why school teachers have to have a bachelors degree + a teacher preparation program that wastes even more time and money for people already looking for work.
A have an idea... create a certification program for people who already have a bachelor's and a paid internship of 6 months classroom time instead of forcing the student to pay to work for the school districts.
Right now to be a teacher you have to complete a 156 hour program, 81 hours of ppr requirements AND a one year internship that is unpaid where you have to actually PAY the mentors.
To be a middle school teacher and teach art you have to have more hours and classroom time under your belt than a high level accountant.

“A disordered currency is one of the greatest of evils. It wars against industry, frugality, and economy. And it fosters the evil spirits of extravagance and speculation.
Of all the contrivances for cheating the laboring classes of mankind, none has been more effectual than that which deludes them with paper money. This is one of the most effectual of inventions to fertilize the rich man’s field by the sweat of the poor man’s brow.
Ordinary tyranny, oppression, excessive taxation: These bear lightly the happiness of the mass of the community, compared with fraudulent currencies and robberies committed with depreciated paper.” ~ Sen. Daniel Webster, during the debate over the reauthorization of the Second National Bank of the U.S. in 1832
