Physics teacher education – where it’s going well (and no, it’s not in Florida)

The American Physical Society has published a list of colleges and universities that have graduated five or more new bachelor’s-level physics teachers in a single year sometime in the last three academic years.  You can see the list of individual institutions here.

But what I’d like to focus on here is the states in which those institutions are located.  In other words, the answer to this question:  In which states do students find it attractive enough to become physics teachers that they do so in significant numbers?

Here is the list of states:

Arkansas

California

Colorado

Idaho

Illinois

Georgia

Michigan

Minnesota

New Jersey

New York

Ohio

Texas

Utah

Virginia

Washington
