SJSU's EDCO Program Needs Stable Leadership

This petition had 81 supporters

The attached petition is an unfortunate but necessary reaction to the lack of leadership in the EDCO program.  The unacceptable no show of the comprehensive exam proctor, heightened the reality that the attainment of our degree is in jeopardy. We, the students, feel it is imperative that action be taken to ensure the successful completion of the degree and credentials offered in the EDCO program. We acknowledge the efforts of many concerned advisers to fill in the gaps created by the lack of leadership and universally accepted requirements. Despite their efforts, students are given conflicting information regarding program requirements and policies. We also feel, along with our advisers, the unnecessary stress and tension created by not having classes available for the promised two year degree attainment. Therefore, we are asking that actions be taken to address the following needs.

  1. EDCO official document outlining the requirements for different degree/credential combinations that ALL advisers use.
  2. Clearly defined approval process and documentation for course substitutions.
  3. Semester course offerings that enable students to progress with their degree without being on campus 3 or 4 nights a week.
  4. Tailor the courses required for the programs so it is possible to complete the MA and credentials within 2 years given the students, your clients, are mostly employed full-time and many commute over an hour each way.
