Palo Alto Adult School poor program
Original post made by Lucy Duncan, Downtown North, on Feb 1, 2008
P.A. Adult School has its "Clinical Medical Assistant Training
Program" run by Boston Reed out of Napa valley for years.
I wondered if the Adult School ever checked its performance.
The students' evaluation forms are collected well before the students
securing their Externship off site as part of the course requirement.
Boston Reed is responsible to help locate a site for students'
externiship after the course completed in the classroom room.
However, Boston Reed is very very slow in this process.
They do not return calls from the students checking on the status.
I heard lots of complaints from fellow students.
The externship is free for the site who host it.
So it is not that hard to find.
After my complaint to the adult shcool, Boston Reed found me one
Boston Reed charges $1470 for such 2 months' course, and fails in time
to find the needed externship for their students. This is truely not
acceptable especially in Palo Alto. The adult school should
do a check out on this.
On my externship site, I heard another Boston Reed student
from Sunnyvale adult school site of Boston Reed,
who also had the same difficulty getting an externship,
and Boston Reed said that he was late for the externship
after the course work date.
He threatened to get his money back, then Boston Reed found him
one externship right away.
He also told me the teacher there was fired by the adult school.
I am not impressed by the lax standard By the P.A. adult school
Is Boston Reed a reasonable educational organization??
How do Palo Alto Adult school maintain its quality of education?
How do we report this to state educational authorities?
