Educational psychologists generally work in schools. Their jobs involve counseling students with issues (such as learning disabilities or behavior problems) but also they may be in charge of standardized testing and, in high schools, helping students decide on and apply to colleges. Unlike teachers, they don't have to plan lessons or take their work home but they get teacher-level salaries or higher if they have advanced degrees. Other ed psychologists have private practices and do counseling. The practitioner definitely provides a community service and experiences both financial rewards and satisfaction from helping others.

People who work in educational psychology study the learning and understanding of the human mind. They want to understand how people learn within educational settings, how effective interventions are, what prompts people to teach, and how schools function as organizations and cultures. Theterm"educational psychology" is often used interchangeably with "school psychology," but the two are not actually the same.

There are many advantages of working in the field of educational psychology. Human beings are fascinating subjects to study, and each one of them has his or her own set of characteristics. These include behavioral and cognitive issues, but they also include moral issues. The challenges and abilities that people have, as well as their skill sets, all come from learning. When people who work in educational psychology find new and better ways to teach people and to help them retain what they have learned, a large number of people can benefit from that.
