Physical Education Teachers
Physical fitness is growing in popularity in the United States. The President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports continues to encourage children and adults to be fit. Although physical education programs continue to be cut, there is hope that this renewed interest in exercise and fitness will reverse this trend. The U.S. Department of Education predicts average growth for preschool, elementary, middle, and secondary school teachers through 2018. Job opportunities should be better in schools in inner cities and rural areas than in suburban districts.
