I need your suggestions

Since I have been having such a hard time finding the ‘perfect’ job here in the Houston area, I’ve started to kick around the idea of going back to college for a Ph.D. in gifted education studies of some sort. I could begin to develop some ties with the academic area, strengthen and deepen my research skills and knowledge of the gifted and have a flexible schedule. The bad side would be the lack of any major income, tons of bookwork and some travel. Any suggestions, info about pursuing this level of degree. How much work would a Ph.D. be?

  1. I think about going back to school myself from time to time. I think you would have to really want to do it. When I did my MA, a friend of mine on the faculty told me that when I figured out what I wanted to do my dissertation on, it would be time to go for a PhD. I have come close to knowing but never been sure, so I keep putting it off.

    I hope you will blog about the decision-making process and your studies — if you decide to go for it.
