As this was an informal survey, responses were highly mixed and many
anecdotal, so it was a judgement call as to what to include. Unscientific
as it is, here is what came up:

No degrees-----------------------------------------3
No degree, plus tech or tech writing courses-------1
AA degree------------------------------------------3
AA degree, plus tech or tech writing courses-------2
BA degree-----------------------------------------28
BA degree, plus tech or tech writing courses------36
MA or higher degree-------------------------------17
MA or higher, plus tech or tech writing courses---24

Total responses----------------------------------114
