Has any of you completed any kind of teacher's education program/degree with WGU? Their (online) programs don't use 'credits' per se; they use what they call "competency units." I have heard lots of different things about them, good and bad, but I am curious about what actual teachers and education pros think of this institution. It's a regionally accredited (Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities) online university that has the first fully online teacher's education program to be accredited by NCATE. http://www.wgu.edu/about_WGU/accreditation Do you know whether or not school districts (particularly NYC, Boston, and/or Philadelphia) are against these so-called competency units? Do they look down on online education, period? They way that WGU does their tuition, makes it truly affordable, provided you are able to complete their programs in less time. However, I am curious in regards to how they are perceived by employers, teachers, etc. Thanks a lot for your help.
