Students who plan to major in education earn low SAT scores, writes Reform K12. On the math test, education majors rank third from the bottom, beating out students who plan to major in agriculture/natural resources and public affairs and services (social work, I think). Ed majors rank second from the bottom on the verbal exam, just above public affairs majors. Since strong verbal skills correlate with effective teaching, this is not good news. Of course, many of these would-be teachers won’t complete a degree.
