Selectivity - continued.....

Joanne Jacobs has a great post pointing the way to Carpe Diem. It turns out that Education PhD’s have the second lowest GRE scores compared to any other academic focus. SAT scores are the same – in 2006, the College Board reported that only 2 majors had lower SAT scores than teachers – public relations and family studies.

The critical path to improved education is teaching. Until we become more selective in our teaching programs, we cannot hope that our students will improve
