Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan announced today on MSNBC’s Education Nation event a new website to promote the teaching profession. The website leads users through a flowchart outlining a potential path to teaching. It lists scholarships and grants available and expects to list teaching job openings in the near future.

The website is a nice introductory resource for anyone looking into teaching as a potential career path, unfortunately however the truth of the matter is that many schools and school districts simply cannot afford to hire at this time. Also at Education Nation, Secretary Duncan urged that we focus on the big picture and that he expects five million new teaching jobs will be available within the next five years.
