AffordableSchools.net, a college rankings site centering on unique and affordable academic programs, announced the release of its newest online masters programs rankings list, featuring the 25 Most Affordable Online Master's of Mathematics/Statistics Education Degrees.

"The US Department of Education published an online overview of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education and included job growth expectation figures," said the article's lead researcher, Raj Dash. "Mathematics-dependent STEM jobs alone are expected to grow at 15% in the period 2010 to 2020, but fewer students are picking these majors in college than the country will need in the near future.Ē

This resulted in a list of the 25 most affordable masters programs in math/statistics education.
