IMO, teachers are overqualified for their job. Im not mentioning professors, TEACHERS. gradeschool - some have master's degrees. DO they really need all of that? Yes i'm sure their goal is to become an admin of a school, but really? Why can't they invent the future or create something, rather than put all of their "hardwork" in the 7-15 year old's hands. "kids are the future" - I feel is BS. I have respect for teachers, disciplining the children, but i feel any supernice lady can do the job who has half a brain. I know a family member who is 45 ish teaching Calculus and has perfect SAT scores and ACT, and is pretty normal, BUT he teaches highschool. Who cares if you have perfect ACT, you threw away your degree IMO. I understand why people like learning and want to teach kids, but why not just have kids. Why do schools require masters or even a bach to teach young kids. Afterall, highschool is 80% babysitting. Does anyone else agree to some extent, or am I out of line. I graduate from private schools up to my bachelors, and I've never said "oh thats a great answer/advice/study habit,.......he has his masters." I only rememeber a few teachers or professors whom I remember rambling about math or some theory. Thoughts or opinions? Im curious how others feel about this, when they hear about someone "training for the olympics, just to teach gradeschool"
