In Texas at least because I have yet to find an elementary school that has 4th or 5th grade Language Arts (only). Most positions are requiring that 4th and 5th grade have dual instruction of ELA and Social Studies. I feel like I wasted my time and money with that test. I'm having a hard time passing the EC-6 (failed it twice) and yes I could teach ELA on the middle school level but those kids are so sassy. My hands are tied.
