My current major is Elementary Education. I have 106 semester hours toward my Bachelor's Degree. The Bachelor's program is a very intense program. I have had to drop out twice because of family obligations. The program has changed a bit, and they are trying to ease up some of the non-necessary course work. If I try again, I will only have 1 class this summer, 3 classes this fall (plus 2 days of student teacher, and then next spring Iwill have my 15 week student teaching. I am very nervous about going back in. I have thought about just changing my major to Criminal Justice. That way if something family related does come up again, it won't affect my school work. With the criminal justice degree, I can pick and choose classes that fit into my schedule. However, it will take me 2 years going full time to finish. Any advice or suggestions?

As a teacher in Illinois, I'd say education is a waste right now. If you live in a state where there is just NO DEMAND at all, which I do. If you live in a state that is hiring teachers, I'd go for it.
