Plans to Teach

External evaluations of the Teacher Cadet Program have confirmed that the Program is an effective tool for recruiting students who are high academic achievers into the teaching profession. An average of 37 percent of all students who have taken part in the Teacher Cadet Program over the years indicate plans to pursue teaching credentials upon entering college. Of the 2006-2007 Cadet class, 39 percent plan to enter teaching, according to the post-course survey. Education was selected significantly more often as a career choice than any other career option. Responses indicate that more than approximately 700 Teacher Cadets each year plan to pursue teaching upon entering college.
