Public schools and private schools have very different pay rates. A public school near me starts a MS degree with no experience at $49K. Equivalent private schools in the area are less than half that! I teach in the Chicago Public Schools as a Math teacher. Yes, I experience the same frustrations and problems, but I've got the golden handcuffs on. If I had only gotten into teaching from day one. I spent 25 years as a COBOL mainframer. After Y2K, I was obsolete, so I went into teaching. Helluva lot more fun than being a cube dweller. And in a big city system, decent dough. But that why we call it combat pay.

Absolutely agree. Lecture is mostly dead. I found myself skipped 50% of the classes. But classes does not consists the major part of my university life. Interaction with Professor, with Classmates, and the resources available in University that enable many more idea to be realized are the key.

Did he mention virtual Lab? I didn't RTFA but how is it going to work!? unless you are saying we are plugged in the Matrix...

There, fixed that for you. I see you skipped most of the written communications, grammar and syntax classes.
