    Smile Do you need a degree in education to teach fine arts in high school?

    I am going to get an MFA in a couple of years and I have heard that in order to teach at a high school art you also need some kind of degree in art education also. Is this true? If so, what are some good schools you would recommend (if any).Please suggest me.

    Yes. to teach high school you need to have a background in k-12 education teaching, and have taken the exam from whatever state you're in that certifies you as a teacher. a master's degree would get you teaching college, where it is considered artists teaching artists, rather than high school, where it's teachers teaching students.
