In what other profession… – D. Reber

Reber, David. “In what other profession…” Topeka Examiner.  August 27, 2010.  Retrieved from:  http://www.examiner.com/k-12-in-topeka/in-what-other-profession

The author compares some of the absurdities of the teaching profession to what is the norm in others.

In what other profession are the licensed professionals considered the LEAST knowledgeable about the job?
In what other profession is experience viewed as a liability rather than an asset?
In what other profession is the desire for competitive salary viewed as proof of callous indifference towards the job?

If a poverty-stricken, drug-addled meth-cooker burns down his house, suffers third degree burns, and then goes to jail; we don’t blame the police, fire department, doctors, and defense attorneys for his predicament. But if that kid doesn’t graduate high school, it’s clearly the teacher’s fault.
