Earning a PHD
By Daring Diane
As she sat in the headmaster’s office, Christina was relieved. Christina was completing her PHD in education. As part of her research, she proposed to observe a 6th grade class for a minimum of 8 weeks. The headmaster told her the proposal was fine as long as Christina was not a disruption and as long as she worked within the rules of the school.

Christina was told that all students, teachers and administrators had to read and understand all of the school rules, methodology and disciplinary procedures. Christina read and signed the documents.
She would be initially observing a 6th grade class. Christina signed a form agreeing to follow the schedule for the 6th grade students and classes she would be observing. Depending on what Christina learned, her proposal included an option to work with one of the other grades as her research progressed.
