What's GED?
I can't determine whether it's a nationally standardized exam (you'd think it would be, but then why the discrepancy regarding what it stands for?). Why should it? High Schools don't have nationally standardized exams do they.Yeah, most high school students take those and some take the ACT tests, but those aren't required for graduation though. Just for college admission, unless you take courses from a JC, like I did, before transferring to a university. Then you can take some oth...

More on Education Schools?
All five regents schools in Kansas do and I believe the same is true of Iowa. Oklahoma, Missouri, Nebraska and Colorado all offer majors, but I don't know if all of their state universities do. So if you have no education major, how are your teachers trained? Or are they?To answer your question, the course of study for prospective teacher in California depends on whether they are interested in teaching elementary ed. or secondary ed. If they are interested in elementary ed. they ar...

Pharmacy Continuing Education
Didn;t the pharmacy license require a PhD at one time? Also, it is a license or certification? While I'm asking, is there licensure/certification for all those pharmacy techs?We (techs) are not "allowed" to make otc drug recommendations. (at least in our state) Any question that we get which may cause someone harm goes to the pharmacist. They have insurance and are legally responsible for the outcome. If I tell someone to take something for their congestion and it is interacts wit...

Distributed Learning vs. Distance Learning/Education ?
I am troubled by your surrender sir. While I am no fan of fads or jargon for jargon's sake, I do happen to believe that what this discussion is reaching for is a term which better defines what we are doing than "distance" learning/educating/etc. This is not to say that jargon can't be abused, as in your example, but neither do I think that the participants in this discussion are of that ilk. I know that I do not use distance education because I feel that technology and reality have m...

If I just needed a form processor or some scripting to drop info in a database, is one language really th...

Thinking about taking an online defensive driving course?I live in Texas and I have just finished a defensive driving course on I didn't like my experience. First, it took way too much time. It has a clock on each page. You can not get to the next page without waiting for the clock to go to zero, even if you need only a fraction of the time on the clock to go through the page. It also not only has a final exam, which is not a big deal, it also has one or more te...

CourseCat com is a professional service who does this, but I'm looking for some examples of high schools who currently are running an online catalog of their...
