The TNT crew of Shaq, Ernie, Kenny and Barkely are the absolute best!!!
I was wondering same thing as I cant see how somebody can get a PHD online. However the way the article is written...i presume that a doctorate in Education aint same thing as a PHD. I wonder if there is a difference?(am lazy to look it up)
PHD is PHD and it doesnt matter whether it's in the liberal arts, humanities, education... As long as the school that offers it is accredited, no questions should be asked.
A doctorate in Education isnt the same as PHD. Check KDA's explanation. And I found this link...go the section that has the title "Comparisons of the Ed.D to the Ph.D. in education"

Either way congrats to Shaquille!!!!
