essentially make a career decision during high school; and the financial burden hang- ing over them throughout their college years. "I have some trouble asking 17- year-olds to commit the next eight years of their life to anything," said Broadhurst. "My opinion is you should select the teaching fellows during their sophomore year of college." Broadhurst said she felt the pressure while at Carolina. "I got scared, and I got icked off that I couldn't major in some- thing else during my sophomore year," she recalled. "My reason for staying in the program at that time was primarily monetary. I was in debt [to the program] already, and I wasn't even enrolled in the ducation school yet. Yet, I didn't know hat else I wanted to do and by the time I actually enrolled in the education school it was all right. I found I liked the subject of education." Broadhurst was named teacher of the year in her school system last year. Day conceded: "It may be too early for some to make that decision. Do we really think 17- and 18-year-olds know hat they want to do?" Lambeth said the program has fulfilled one of its prime missions - to be fiscally responsible with the tax money granted to it. He said everyone who has received a fellowship has paid it off in service or in cash. "Everybody is teaching, has taught or paying off the debt," he said. But will the program fulfill its ambitious missions? To that, Lambeth has few answers. "Weare definitely attracting highly qualified students, but whether they stay in the career a longer time, only time will tell," he said. "Has it had an impact on other teachers? Has it helped lift the profession? We still have to leam this." .lID.
