Herb's comment: "I believe all secondary teachers should have a major in the area they're teaching" He also goes on to mention that teacher conferences are more important that padding one's resume with more math courses later on.
I agee completely. In fact, I would say that a major in history and a solid minor (through real analysis, some algebra and statistics) in math would qualify a person to teach math. What I'm against is this amorphous undergraduate education degree. (You know, the one that Mr. Goldenberg is so in love with).
