I’ve written a fair amount about the damage some economists have wrought on schools (see The Best Posts & Articles About The Role Of Economists In Education).
Five Thirty Eight just wrote a post finding that out of 308 new economists graduating from the “top” fifteen economics schools, only two are planning to study education. That’s the least amount out of any other field. I’ve embedded the chart below.
It seems to me that can only be good news for us teachers, our students, and their families.
What do you think?
