universities classifying PK-12 STEM teaching as a STEM profession

Full Challenge: The number of universities that classify PK-12 STEM teaching as a STEM profession among their alumni.

Challenge Description: Many universities discourage students with STEM majors from pursuing STEM teaching jobs. This is because few job classification systems (such as the US Census Bureau) consider STEM K-12 teaching to be a STEM occupation.
