DoD And The Department Of Education Have Partnered On The Highly Successful Troops-To-Teachers Program. Under this program, the Secretary of Education supports DoD in providing assistance, including stipends of up to $5,000, to eligible members of the Armed Forces so that they can obtain certification or licensing to become highly qualified elementary, secondary, or vocational/technical teachers. In addition, the program helps these new teachers find employment.
