I read a stat somewhere, but ui don't know if it is correct. It said that more students in college today are studying sports management than engineering.
Good luck getting a job in sports management. That is also a cake degree to get.

Most of the people that I know who went for sport management are doing ticket sales for their local sports minor league teams.

I do not have a degree other than one in Metalurgy. I make good money and have no student loans to pay back and have been earning that money since I was 19.

No wonder NC is starved for teachers, they just won't pay 'em.
Most teachers dont even go to get their masters. If you have a masters you are required to make so much more money. Why would a school hire someone with a masters when they can get another teacher for so much cheaper?

Teachers definitely need to make more than they do. Its a joke, really.

The courses required for the different science, math and engineering degrees are to hard and the kids in the United States are afraid or to soft to take these courses on.

Obviously not all kids, but this is the main reason that there are so few going into those fields.

Companies go to where the resources are, that's for sure.

I know school districts push Math and Science, almost to the detriment of English. At least my kids' district (Cincinnati suburb) are screaming for the high school kids to be more proficient. I have suggested to my kids to expand their minds to the sciences and math, to no avail. When they were younger, I didn't get into how science works either-the practical stuff. Nor did I show them why they needed to find "x" in school and why "a" and "b" were so important.

Maybe I should have pushed a little more, but I wanted them to discover what their strengths were. Which happen to be soccer, swimming, lacrosse and tennis. As well as whatever classes they have to take and how to get a solid "B" so they're eligible for said sports. And qualify for colleges.
