Educational IT in the USA
My wife has decided she doesn't like the weather in the UK (can't figure out why?) and wants to move back to her place of origin (Florida). I'll be moving there by early next year. Which leads to this question, directed at those that either live in the states or know anything about it:
What are the differences between educational IT in the UK and the USA? Are there any 'gotchya's" I need to be aware of? Does IT support work on the school level, or just the district level?
I'm currently the IT manager for a large educational establishment in the UK, am working on my computing bachelors degree at the OU and hope to have my CCNA and one of the VMWare certifications under my belt by the time I leave. I'm led to believe the US focus comsiderably more of certifications than anything else when looking through candidates for an IT role, so I hope this will be sufficient.
