Subject matter teaching study

A recent study found that high school students who are taught by teachers who majored or minored in a specific teaching subject, instead of a general teaching degree, are more likely to graduate from college. Post-secondary success may also be linked to teacher enthusiasm and passion for subject matter, which can motivate students to get engaged.
