Noreality, thanks for posting that. I had NO idea. It's just that we haven't heard her referred to as Dr. and it started to get a little overdone and obvious like all the media got taken to task for not using it before which they should have been. Anyone that works that hard for it, should get to use "dr."
I'm like you, with a Ph.D in education, maybe that will put an emphasis on it in this administration.
As an ex educator, it meant a lot to me. I agree with both you and Ellen, as well, that it will be nice to see the end of a 'dumbing down of our culture'.
