Hello I am a new york resident, and I currently teach one of the tough inner city schools in my area. I hold a masters in secondary education and I am seriously committed to finding a Ph.D program in educational leadership. I am new to the world of online education. Every school that I have ever been to was brick and mortar. What attracts me to the online programs is convience and accelaration. I actually have two questions. My goal is to go into high school leadership capacity position or as a consultant to educators such as myself. I recognize that neither position requires a Ph.D but it is an endeavor that I wish to accomplish. That being said, from people's experience and knowledge of oline educational programs, will it matter greatly which RA school I attend. My concern is that all brick and mortor schools have a GRE requirement. I am also considering the online world beacuse many of the schools that I have been researching do not have that requirement. I am not trying to aviod the GRE out of laziness or because I am seeking the easy way out. The schools require competitive score on the math section. Being severely bad at math and not having taken any kind of math class in about ten years, it is completely out of reach for me. Some schools that I've looked at so far are Grand Canyon University Liberty University Walton NorthCentral University Does anyone know anything about any of these programs? Northcentral basically told me that my admission is 100% certain as long as I show proof that I hold a masters. This makes me extremely skeptical about applying there. Thanks advice would be graetly appreciated. I apologize if similar questions have been asked a million times before.
