A Possible Next Step for Many of America's Heroes
Through the Troops to Teachers program, No Child Left Behind provides stipends to help eligible members of the Armed Forces obtain certification or licensing as highly qualified elementary or secondary teachers. No Child Left Behind also helps facilitate the employment of these individuals where they are needed most by making available $10,000 bonuses for teaching in high-need public schools, including public charter schools.
