Connecticut Masters in Education Programs
(found programs from 15 schools)
Teachers in Connecticut have traditionally been near the top of the country in terms of salary, and teachers with a master's degree generally make more money that those without one. Teacher pay differs from district to district, but having a master's degree typically means thousands of extra dollars per year. A beginning teacher in Danbury, for example, nets almost $5,000 extra for having a master's degree, as reported by Danbury Public Schools. In Meridian, the difference is more modest - around $2,700 per year for a beginning teacher, according to the Meridian Board of Education.
Connecticut is currently facing teacher shortages in a number of areas, including bilingual education, special education, English, math, remedial reading and language arts, arts, science, and world languages.
