Recession brings increase in applicants to TC

Educators seem to be having a relatively easier time finding employment than their job-seeking peers going after corporate positions. As both undergraduates and career-changers recognize this trend, many are deciding to pursue degrees at schools of education like Columbia's Teachers College, according to a recent story in the Columbia Spectator. "With the economy and with Obama's message about service, places like Teachers College really fit in nicely," said Thomas Rock, Executive Director of Enrollment Services.
