You really should visit the Speakeasy Forum at Poets & Writers:
The MFA forum is loaded with useful information about programs all over the country.
As for teaching writing-- At the college level, you need at least an MFA in Creative Writing AND some significant publications (books, short fiction in respected lit mags, etc.). If you want to teach writing at the high school level, an MA in English or an MFA in Writing are both sufficient.
Hope that helps.
