My college is eliminating its education department. The news story says they are cutting back majors due to low enrollment, but the other side of this story is that the majors selected for cuts were chosen due to lack of interest. All of the majors cut were scaled back to minors, except education. They are eliminating that department completely. A letter we received from the college president did say that current ed majors would be able to finish the program and receive their degree and teaching license. I just wonder how many other small colleges like mine are having to make the same decision because of lack of interest in teaching.

Can't say that I'm surprised. Little to noo respect, low pay compared to others with an equal amount of education, and the stress level. I would recommend tech related fields over education.
