Uni’s top students choose teaching. More than half the students starting a teaching degree at one of the nation’s leading universities chose a teaching career, despite having the marks to study engineering, arts, science or medicine. A survey conducted by Sydney University’s education faculty shows that more than half the students training as primary school teachers scored more than 90 out of a possible 100 in their university entrance score. Among those studying to be secondary school teachers, more than 30 per cent scored above 90. The Australian, 29 August 2006 [Recent Items]
