Job outlook data

Literacy teachers held around 77,500 jobs in 2014, the last year for which data are available. Employment is projected to grow 7 percent from 2014 to 2024.

Growth in this field will occur as continued immigration to the United States creates a need for adult literacy and high school equivalency diploma programs. Many immigrants do not speak English and will want to improve their communication skills to help them find jobs in the United States. English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers will be needed to help these students gain the required skills.

Note: Data was not immediately available for non-certificate earners.
