No. I'm already a teacher. This is just an additional degree and certification. I've been teaching for four years without it. It's not a requirement to teach in my district, but I know people who have used it for defense lawyers against absurd attempts at lawsuits or litigation.

But it's a requirement of the university for some reason, and I'm not sure if it's supposed to be for my benefit or theirs. Another fellow teacher is in a similar boat with having to get the insurance to get his administrator's license.
