How do you pronounce the word 'schedule'?

Do you say sked-ule or shed-ule? Is this the correct way to pronounce the word where you're from? I'm asking this question because I've noticed that lots of people in England now pronounce the word the American way (probably influenced by American films and TV shows) and I was just wondering how many people out there say it either of the two ways above.

i pronounce this word as shed-ule as i think they are both similar and dont see much difference between them

I guess there's not much difference really - it's just one of those little things that bugs me when English people say sked-ule. I guess I'm being petty minded but I don't want English people to end up sounding like Americans.

Shed-ule is the English way and that's how I say it. I've just noticed that more English people are saying sked-ule - I've heard the excuse that it's easier to say sked-ule than shed-ule but neither word is easier to say than the other.

Everyone where I live says it sked-ule, and I do too usually. I used to have some really snobby friends who said it shed-ule because they thought it made them sound smart. Of course I told them what would make them sound smarter is actually talking about something of consequence rather than just saying words in different ways from everyone else. =)

That's a good point ;-) As far as I'm aware, sked-ule is the correct way to say it in America.
