    WTF, wouldn't most state schools have both?

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    It's exactly what I did. I could spend ten hours telling you how messed up the education system is and how few programs prepare teachers for it/ Plus added to that everyone with an education major ends up trying to go into teaching since there's little else to do with the degree (loleditor), which means tons and tons of competition for hs teachers.

    If ya wanna teach I'd suggest something like math (lol I ahte math and which I ahd done that instead), it's a lot less paperwork involved (correcting tests/etc.) and math teachers are always in severe demand. XD

    I guess I see what you're saying, but are you talking about a major in education? >_>; It sounds like that's what youre saying BUT I CANT TELL JEEZ
    and yeah I know it's kind of a hotly contested area but it's one of my whimsical childhood dreams and I'll kick myself in the face if I give up on this one too

    plus I suck at math.
    HORRIBLY

    XD ya minor is different than a major, but for secondary education you have to have an undergrad degree in your teaching field to begin with (aka you can't really major in secondary education until you have a BA unless your college offers a program that's basically a double major (which btw can be severe overkill and may make you start dressing in drag and dancing with a jar of pickles in the street)). My warning was only that English is one of those very fun but rather useless majors and really only offers you being an editor or a teacher. Hence why the country is overpopulated with English BA's trying to be teachers.

    The math part I mentioned is I learned (which I should have told my brain ages ago) correcting poorly written english papers day in and day out takes about 5 hours of your evening, and makes it so from september till june you have absolutely no time to yourself. Math at least is along the lines of "it's either right or wrong end of story." And correcting goes a lot faster and is a lot easier on your brain. :/

    But I'm just jaded I guess XD

    I understand your position fully, but correcting people is honestly what I live for. A sparkle appears in my eye each time I make your you're and each time I cross out a two and put too above it. Each and every punctuation mark I add I go wild. Each spelling mistake I correct I swear to god I jump for joy.

    Would be much easier if Rocl didn't want to teach.

    Rocl also wanted me to point out that I'm looking for Japanese courses in the college. (Still don't believe he made this thread lol.)
