my wife is a teacher in Miami, FL. We've heard that in order to be hired as a teacher in charlotte or nc your bachelors needs to be in education. True or False?

My BA was not in Education. In CA you can't even get an undergrad in Education, you must attend grad school. I got MAs in Educational areas and was fine with our move here. I was fully credentialled and had graduate degrees from California.

You will need to do some research at the NC Public Education website to see what kind of reciprocity FL has with NC.

If your wife is a certified teacher in the state of FL she probably can get the same certification in NC. You do not need to have a bacularate degree in education to be certified but you do need a certain number of hours of education courses and a practicium or classroom internship. I'm sure the requirement in FL is similar.

If you have a master's degree it does have to be in education in order for the state to offer the extra pay grade. For instance, my MA was in history - the subject I taught, but it didn't qualify me for the extra pay because it wasn't an education degree. My BA was in history with a minor in secondary education and I had teaching certification in GA, and I had no problem coming in from out of state. I did have to take an additional part of the Praxis though for NC that was not required in GA. They gave me a year of temporary liscensure in NC to get that taken care of though.
