Iowa Teacher Careers, Certification & Salaries

Iowa is shedding its identity as an exclusively agricultural state; they have made some inroads in terms of broadening its economy however and the state has made an effort to upgrade educational quality through statewide initiatives. Enrollment has halted a thirteen year decline; a modest uptick is predicted for the next five years. Industrial development has led to an influx of immigrant labor, with significant growth in the Hispanic community. Des Moines has also become a regional financial center with several insurance companies headquartered there today, providing some opportunities to students graduating from Iowa universities to find careers in the state.
