Demand for teacher paraprofessionals in Illinois will increase by more than 14 percent, creating more than 5,600 new jobs in the state, estimates the Illinois Department of Employment Security. Under the Federal No Child Left Behind Act, paraprofessionals in schools in the United States must meet minimum requirements prior to assisting teachers in classrooms. This legislation has led the Illinois State Board of Education to establish a certification program, requiring paraprofessionals to obtain state-issued credentialing before working in the field.How to Become a Paraprofessional Educator?
