From my friend Christopher Coonce-Ewing
First the fact that we pay full tuition to teach irks me a bit. But then, because it’s only nine credits we have to get a special form filled out, signed by the Dean of Education and bring it to the Registrar that tells them to accept the total of 10 credits as full time. Given that I earn 3 credits for spending 2 hours and 40 minutes a week on campus for 15 weeks, would it really kill them to change student teaching to 11 credits for the 40 or so hours a week I’ll be in the school for 13 weeks? This is just another example of the hoops that we need
to jump through. There are times when I think I should graduate with a BS Ed Secondary History and a minor in Red Tape Navigation.
