Major: Education (This Major's Salary over time)

I took my last class in August of 2004 for a Master in Secondary Education. I had to find and hunt down my own student teaching placement. What a nightmare. Most school employers frown on UOP. Not a big surprise. They all ready had the 411 on UOP. I didn't know it was so badly viewed. The college of education made sure that I was not successful on my second student teaching placement. The site supervisor also a corporate person injected herself into the situation (student teaching placement) and gave me an F for student teaching of 50 plus days. I passed all the certification tests and I get this type of treatment. It is too expensive and really not a good place to learn, sadly. $20,000 gone down the drain and a legal battle for years. That's my UOP education. What a freaking joke. If you ask me, it is a Diploma Mill to the 20th power. Took my money and didn't care if or how I pay it back. I can't, now! I have no job and no degree for which I have been working now for 8 years in the field of education. My motto is: One day the smoke will clear. UOP is going down. Sounded Advice to the readers—Just you don't be a part of the smoke and mirrors of UOP education. Shame on the Department of Education and the Federal Government for letting this type of educational institution exist in America.
