Just starting to look into colleges and figuring out what the path to get there for my sophmore daughter. She is sure she wants to be a high school teacher. We are beginning to plan her courses and are trying to figure out exactly what these schools want to see. Recently I heard that the top schools for Education are State/Western and Central. Where does U of M fit in? My daughter is currently pulling a 3.65 gpa with honors math and english. But we all know that she's not putting in maximum effort. I guess what I'm wondering is, is it worth it for her to go nuts trying to get a higher GPA to get into say Michigan, or just cruise along at her current speed and get into Western. Does it matter when trying to get a job as a teacher?
