I'm considering applying for a part-time PhD in Education. Am I crazy?

I am currently a high-school science teacher in the UK. I have recently had the crazy idea of pursuing a PhD in Education, part-time (and online) at a prestigious university (ranked top-5 in the world overall, if you are one to listen to rankings), while I continue my work as a teacher.

How can I finish my MAT graduate degree in another school?

I'd like to know what options I have for finishing a MAT (or MIT) graduate degree in and around Boston when basically I'm missing the practicum and student teaching but have acquired almost all required academic courses aside from that. I'd want to transfer something like 70-90% of my credits. I can no longer stay in my program (thanks to my advisor's say-so: it's not that I'm failing), and transferring 2 classes within the institution (to another Education degree) is possible, but I'd have to reapply, and basically take 70% of the new (general M.Ed) degree. I do like this degree. However, at this point, I've been in school so long I can't take it anymore, but I do want to teach (in an alternative school, granted). Yes, I know I can teach without a degree; at this point I would really rather not simply quit, though. [more inside]

Leave academia for K-12?

My partner is doing her Ph.D in English but is starting to think she wants to teach elementary or high school. We're in Canada. We've got questions about the job market, location, and the benefits and burdens of getting the Ph.D. [more inside]

Should I take a job or get a free masters degree?

I'm graduating this semester with a license to teach secondary history. Help me decide whether to take a one-year teaching job or a fully-funded MA in history. I want to ultimately teach high school, but full tuition + a monthly stipend seems too good to pass up, and I can't do both. What should I do? [more inside]
