STRONGLY OPPOSED TO CACREP ONLY
 

If you attended school, paid, took out loans, quit your job to complete your necessary hours for practicum and internship. Then completed exhausting exams and applications and more hours to gain licensure in order to practice and do what you love to do; why should that be taken away because of a technicality? I do not believe it's right to have those who've rightfull earned their keep, suddenly get stripped of benefits because the school they may have attended YEARS ago wasn't CACREP accreditted. That's like saying "oh even though you went through 40 weeks of pregnancy and hours of labor, you didn't give birth to a child." It's making thier hard-work seem meaningless when it's not. Our field already gets enough backlash from other fields, we shouldn't turn on each other.
