Considering a Doctoral Degree? Everything You Need to Know
Mason-Williams, Loretta; Wasburn-Moses, Leah
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v49 n1 p74-81 Sep-Oct 2016
Many special educators seek opportunities to learn more and to make systemwide changes. These educators, however, may not know what else to do or where else to look for answers to challenges they experience within their current roles and settings. Rather than continuing to search for answers within their current position, some special educators may choose to focus on creating the answers by pursuing a doctoral degree. Using the mnemonic DOCTORAL (Decide, Outcome, Consider, Time, Opportunities, Research, Ask, Look), the authors provide background, pointers, and information about earning a doctorate.
