  •  It probably isn't hard. But another year of school (6+ / 0-)

    and after getting a Phd, probably hard to justify money and another year to get a credential. I have friends who have done it though because public school teachers make more money than teaching at a community college or state university because those places hire part time and pay no benefits.

    •  Depending on the state, it can be difficult to (7+ / 0-)

      do in less than 2 years, and you may be expected to put in two semesters of "practicum" -- i.e., unpaid internship as a "student teacher".

      This makes the opportunity cost of a cert quite high.

      To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

      •  In California I believe a bachelor's is required (2+ / 0-)

        then admission to a one year credential program which does require student teaching. Sometimes they offer flex programs which have classes on weekends to make it easier for working people.

        Some of our state universities offer a 4 year program which includes bachelor's and credential.
