      I read this story this morning as I was looking at cancer-related articles. Sometimes those "highly educated" ones in charge of these places aren't so educated. You can't be taught common sense, and you can't buy it at Wal-Mart, so they are what they are.

      That statement from the Rapid City officials makes me furious.
      I agree with @LiveWithCancer about public outrage. Here's hoping.

      @GregP_WN, when I worked for large, urban school districts, it was a BIG thing for employees to have their Doctorates of Education. I worked with lots of "doctors."

      ... I used to say that many of those people turned in brain cells (or common sense) when they received their doctoral diplomas. I never saw so many supposedly highly educated individuals who were dumber than dirt. It was sad and disheartening.

      (I don't know about elsewhere, but around here, it wasn't all that uncommon to purchase the paper saying you had your EdD ... or to take a few classes online ... or to get someone else to write your thesis ... I became quite the cynic.)

    Hi Cally. Welcome to What Next. There are lots of great people here. If you have any questions, please use the question tab above -- that way everyone will have access & you'll get a quicker response. Likewise, please feel free to browse questions, as your experiences might be helpful to another WhatNexter. I'm very sorry for the loss of your sister & your father. And even though my mom didn't die from cancer (complications following a stroke), I agree, being a caregiver is MUCH harder than being a patient! Glad you found us but sorry for the circumstances that led you here. Wishing you all the best.
