Financial Failure Encourages Teacher Training

A recent USA Today article asserts that the financial downturn is responsible for more applicants to teacher ed. programs, specifically Teach For America.

Eh, their arguments on the causes are pretty flawed, and we could discuss whether the growing numbers are good or bad, but they have some interesting stats about the growth of TFA. I thought I'd share:
