Typical statements that may be gleaned from a variety of studies and compilations of data on the preparation of high‐school teachers are:

“Training in physics ranged from 8 to 55 semester hours with the median at 16. Only 13 (about 25%) had majored in physics.”

“The average number of semester hours in physics taken by the science teachers was 10.”

“One third of the physics teachers had fewer than 10 semester hours in physics.”
