The education department is not put together well

Nov 12 2013Education
The education department is not put together well at all. Student may find themselves forced to eighteen to twenty credit hours in order to get through in four years. Many students are also forced to take summer classes. They schedule education classes at the same time and only offer one section. This causes students a lot of grief and stress. The teachers know what students are going through and do not appear to be helping. It is not the students fault that the teachers messed up, but, yet, we are the ones paying for it. Even if this school did offer a masters degree in education, I would not come here for it. It is not worth my time. If I didn't have only three semesters left, I would transfer.

The education program here is not very well

Feb 04 2010Education
The education program here is not very well put together. This school doesn't offer students very much to do. Also, other students seem to keep to their own group of friends and not care to talk to anyone else. Overall if I knew that the education program here was like this I would not of attended here.

If I had to this over again, I

If I had to this over again, I would not come to this school for education. It's just simply not put together very well. There's a number of things, just simply wrong. The school will not let them hire another full time staff member, which results in them being understaffed, which in turn effects their teaching. Two of three FULL TIME STAFF members do not even teach face to face and leave it up the other full time staff member and part time teachers. Special Education is completely online, even though the teacher is capable of and should teach these classes face to face. I do not feel prepared at all to pass my special education tests because I have not learned anything.

Another problem I have with the education department is the way they handle scheduling. They only offer one section of each class, certain times of the year. Sometimes they even offer two different classes at the same time on the day. They refuse to move them!!! We don't really get into our majors until junior year and this is a big problem that they don't seem to want to correct.

What I got and what I signed up for are two different things. Knowing what I know now, I would not have come here and in fact, I considered transferring at the end of my second year. It was not just the education program that has caused this negative feelings.

There was a mix up with my FAFSA paperwork that was 100% on financial aid and the school tried to charge me full tuition. They did this a large percentage of the school and would not fix it. It did get corrected, but it was a very stressful summer and as a result, I do not trust them with anything.

There has just been a number of changes and many of the students are upset with them. The school changes rules to fit their needs, not the students. They keep telling us that we are not numbers but people, but it does not seem like that. It's such a shame because this used to be a really good school.

Come on WJU! Get you act together!
