Re: Masters in Education

Totally agree. That's why I suggested the English-taught one from UCJC in Spain. Last I checked it was about 5-6000 USD, takes 1 year, and is fully accredited... It's a strange but interesting middle point between UoP and a more "traditional" offering.

Re: Masters in Education

If you want a somewhat strange alternative: The UCJC university in Spain has an English-taught Master's degree in International Education which is also endorsed by the IB. It is probably 2.5 times the cost of University of the People, but it is fully accredited, and has a better sounding name and it...

Re: Masters in Education

It is quite an unfortunate name, I agree (it's really strange that no one picked on that before they started doing business, or maybe they really like a name with a Soviet vibe). In regards to accreditation: as I mentioned before they are only nationally accredited. That's very clear and upfront fro...

Re: Utah's Associate Educator License - new option?

Totally agree. I'm just wondering how good (or bad) option this would be for say an experienced teacher with no actual teaching license. It would seem easier to get than the MS route, for example. But I don't know if the fact that it is specific for charter schools would make it a deal-breaker for i...

Re: Utah's Associate Educator License - new option?

@Psyguy What are your thoughts on Indiana's "Charter School License"? If I understand correctly, one only needs to have a Bachelor's degree in the content area (or just a Bachelor's degree in another area and pass the relevant exam). Being an actual teaching license issued by the department of educa...

Re: Utah's Associate Educator License - new option?

Thanks for your information. I cannot seem to find where on the regulations it says that it can only be renewed once. Can you please share this? All I got d is that it can only be renewed if the individual has less than 2 years of experience... https://casetext.com/regulation/utah-administrative-cod...

Utah's Associate Educator License - new option?

So, Utah took away the academic pathway they used to have. However, they now seem to have this "Associate Educator License" which (in short) is a 2 year license which you can get by having a Bachelor's degree, taking some online modules (not clear if they are free) and passing the relevant Praxis ex...

Re: SEARCH/ISS and Coronavirus (breaking signed contract)

Thanks PsyGuy.

As previously mentioned: if anyone with a recent and relatable experience can share (having discussed with a recruitment agency reneging on a signed contract), I definitely would appreciate it.

SEARCH/ISS and Coronavirus (breaking signed contract)

Anyone with any knowledge on how the big agencies are managing people reneging on a contract for August due to the whole corona . situation? Any first hand experiences? I accepted a position at a new location back in November, and am pretty sure this location will be in deep trouble due to corona (I...

Re: Creating fake references

I'm not sure the OP is for real; but for the sake for argument, I'll share my view: If your question is: "can I create references and get away with it?". Then the short answer is: sure, I'm pretty sure it might work in some schools. Some schools do a very bad job at checking references, and it could...

Re: Have you ever stopped an interview right on the spot?

I can certainly understand a school that wants to make things clear; this wasn't my experience, however, it was more a case of this Principal venting about everything he disliked about the country (all of which were things anyone who bothers researching just a bit would know). I did not stop the int...

Re: Have you ever stopped an interview right on the spot?

A similar experience to the one mentioned by the OP: A few weeks ago I had an interview where the Principal seemed like he was trying to convince me not to go to that country... It started with the typical "Why are you interested in coming to _________?" and quickly moved from that to this person in...
