I read this article, http://ncraonline.org/NewsInfo/JCR/2008/0804/0408_student_reporter.htm
, and it send shivers down my spine. If I had read this article before starting on the journey of becoming a court reporter I would have turned tail and run. Are the schools doing a dis-service to students telling future students they can be court reporters in two years? What is the average time for a student to finish court reporting school? Should schools tell students that the normal graduating rate is one out of ten students will graduate and enter the profession? If a school tells a student it should only take two years to graduate, and the student takes five or more years to graduate, should the school continue to charge the high tuition rate or should there be a set amount the student will paid for tuition even if it takes longer to graduate?
I am wondering what others think about the article.
