How feasible would it be for a PhD student in physics (who is interested in teaching high school after their PhD) to receive a masters in education from the university they are receiving their PhD from?
I would think that at least during the first 2 years of a PhD program, before qualifying exams when you are taking courses and being a TA, this is in no way feasible.
What about if you had permission from your PhD research advisor to do so during the later years of your PhD, when you are only doing research and have less (or none if you're funded) TA duties?
How competitive would getting into the school's masters in education program be? I would think that being a PhD student there would help.
Would being a current PhD student help in receiving scholarships to alleviate the costs of the masters in education?
