Continuing education

All teachers are expected to continue their professional growth throughout their career. Many teachers use their vacation time to take advanced college courses or to attend conventions for teachers in their field. Many school districts provide in-service training for teachers. Such training may include conferences and workshops after school hours or special reading materials to be studied at home. A variety of journals and other publications help teachers keep informed about developments in their field.

 

Teachers organizations

In the United States, teachers may join a number of professional organizations. The National Education Association of the United States INEAI has the largest membership of teachers of any U.S. educational organization. It has branches in every state and in many cities and towns. The NEA works chiefly to raise educational standards and to improve the pay and working conditions of teachers. The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) is a national teachers' union that works mainly to improve teachers' salaries and working conditions. Hundreds of local teachers' unions throughout the United States are associated with the AFT. In the mid-1970s, the NEA and AFT discussed joining to form one organization.

Many U.S. teachers' organizations concentrate on a particular field, such as English, mathematics, or special education. For example, the National Council of Teachers of English is an organization for English teachers at all school levels. The National Catholic Educational Association offers membership to teachers and administrations in Roman Catholic schools. The Association of Teacher Educators works to promote quality programs for teacher education.

Canada has a number of large provincial and local teachers organizations and unions with goals similar to those of the NEA and AFT. The Canadian Education Association is a small but important national organization that works to improve the quality of education throughout Canada.
