More about teaching and physics:
"High school physics teaching is a career path that has many attractive features for students who find their personal goals will not be well served by the 10 years of additional preparation (Ph.D. and postdocs) required to secure an academic position, and the dramatic personal pressures placed on individuals who pursue this path."
"The physics teacher preparation program at City College of New York addresses the needs of a large urban school system through a strong collaboration between the physics and secondary education departments." Transforming the Preparation of Physics Teachers: A Call to Action, 2012, page 68. 2013TTEP
The City College of New York was one of only 11 colleges and universities nationwide cited for excellence in physics teacher preparation, according to a new national study. The report, produced by the National Task Force on Teacher Education in Physics (T-TEP), pointed out that physics has a greater shortage of teachers than any other science discipline.
