New Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) with a Concentration in Charter School Administration.
Dr. Barry Resnick, Administrative Dean of The Boyer Graduate School of Education of William Howard Taft University, has announced the University is accepting applications for a new online Ed.D. program. This new program builds on the success of the current Doctor of Education program with the addition of a concentration in Charter School Administration.
The Doctor of Education with a concentration in Charter School Administration Program is a practical, directed independent study program which emphasizes course work in educational leadership and management with a focus on charter school operations.
Charter schools were created to help improve our nation’s public school system and offer parents another public school option to better meet their child’s specific needs. The core of the charter school model is the belief that public schools should be held accountable for student learning. In exchange for this accountability, school leaders should be given freedom to do whatever it takes to help students achieve and should share what works with the broader public school system so that all students benefit. With the growing dissatisfaction of public school education in general, the number of charter schools and overall enrollment in charter schools is expected to materially increase in the next decade. This projected growth will require many more administrators trained and experienced in charter school operation.
The Program is facilitated by highly qualified faculty with vast and varied academic teaching and administrative experience and terminal degrees earned from some of the top Universities in the nation.
All coursework in the Program is presented in a distance learning modality. Accordingly, students may keep their full-time positions, and perform coursework on their schedule – anywhere with Internet access.
The Program is designed to meet the needs of individuals with public or private school teaching experience who seek administrative positions or middle level managers who are interested in moving into higher levels of administration – particularly in the charter school arena.
