For NYC teachers/principals or people who know NYC teachers/principals: Is getting a masters in teaching (for someone who does not have an undergraduate teaching degree) at Columbia Teachers College or Bank Street or NYU better than getting a masters at CUNY for hiring purposes? The cost difference is significant.
I don't know if significantly better, but the connections ARE significantly better. My other half just graduated from Bank St. this past spring; absolutely loved the program. Had many job offers and worked at a top private school in NYC for several years.
