Who goes to college (of education)? 

I'm not sure what to make of this story from ReformK12 on future teachers and their SAT scores. This only says that those who intend to go into education scored lower on SATs, not those who actually get education degrees. (That's Praxis, and that's a different story.) And it's worth noting that those who intend to go into business and commerce don't score much higher. Nevertheless, it says that the teaching profession doesn't attract students who do well on the SAT. So I wonder: What kinds of students are attracted to colleges of education right out of high school?
