I am the UXD (I use this as loosely as possible) for an education startup company. I have a typeahead in my sign up form:
This is the last entry in the sign up form. Underneath that (hidden right now) is the submit button. Now I'd like to let the kids have the option of typing a school of their own because their school might not be in the database yet. But I'm seeing a lot of duplicate schools in the database from manual typing as opposed to selecting the pertinent thing in the typeahead. How do I get them to just type their school?
Update: There are 200+ schools. If I convert this to a select tag, is that okay?
