My daughter will be a high school senior this year, and has been receiving a lot of mail from colleges. Caldwell College put out a brochure that states: Teach math and science! Nationally, the demand for teachers in science and mathematics is overwhelming. To help address this shortage, we offer a five-year education degree. This is very misleading. While math and science teaching careers offer better opportunities for jobs than other teaching fields, to say that there is an overwhelming shortage is deceptive. I've seen other examples of this in the literature from colleges, but this one was blatant and irresponsible. In this economy, many prospective students will read that and think they will have an excellent chance of being hired. Of course, we can't predict what will happen five years from now, but they should present this in a more realistic light.
