    Like that would ever happen!

    And landing teaching jobs is much harder than landing most jobs that pay the same as teachers. I have several friends with Master's degrees in teaching who couldn't get hired as a teacher anywhere and instead went in different professions that pay the same or better than teaching. One guy is in the Tech sector for about the same or better pay then he would make as a teacher, another guy master's in teaching and working as a conductor for Northfork Southern Railroad, another guy I know working as a truck driver and he has a Master's in teaching, another guy I know Masters in teaching couldn't land a teaching job so instead he works as used car salesman. Another guy I know Master's in teaching and couldn't land a teaching job after like 30+ interviews and his teacher he did student teaching with said he was too stupid to be a teacher so he went on and got his MBA from a top 20 business school and now he makes over $100k a year working in sales.

    Supply and demand of teachers is cyclical. Teachers can't find teaching jobs, so fewer students take education classes, so fewer teachers graduate, so the ones who do find jobs plentiful as fewer students are graduating as teachers, so more students begin to take education classes and on and on.
