Masters of Education program in Chicago area?

Hi. I was wondering if anyone knew a great masters program for education in the Chicago land area that won't break the bank too much. My boy friend is just finishing up his bachelors at Northeastern and absolutely hated it there...so that one is pretty much out of the question (despite its reputation & great price).

Also, if you happen to know of any local certification programs as well..please pass them along. If it helps, he plans on teaching biology on a high school or university level. Thanks ever so much.

    Try chicago public schools. They used to have programs to help people gain certification. Contact illinois state board of ed to find out what classes he needs for certification (usally a couple education courses if he already has a bachelors from liberal arts school) and take them at Governor's State, Chicago State, or even a community college before he gets the masters. Once he starts teaching, lots of schools have programsto help get masters and reimburse tuition expenses. Also, there's a program that forgives federal student loans if he teaches five years in a high needs area. Check the link below and good luck!
