In effort not to thread jack my previous thread on CCU, I started a new one. Ok, so I know there is conflicting information on the viability of a DETC doctorate and ability to adjunct. Whatever. My ultimate goal with a doctorate is to advance in K-12 administration. From what I understand, nobody really cares as long as your Ed.D. is accredited for professional purposes. Once you start heading towards the academia crowd things start to smell a bit and noses begin shooting towards the sky. So, in my situation, being that I have a BA and MA for RA institutions, and I'm currently a department chair looking to apply to assistant principal jobs soon, does anyone have any evidence that a DETC Ed.D. would not be beneficial?
