Education is part of the humanities family but it is been long discussed about whether or not, education becomes a member of the liberal arts. Why a lawyer, a psychologist, can sell their services but a teacher cannot. And what troubles me more is that the content rights have to be transferred to districts which are eager to share proceeds. Are professors impeded to do business with their knowledge? No.
Please, allow capable educators to pursue the returns on money and time they invested in college and universities. Don't they pay for learning what they today know? Again, physicians, architects, are all getting their investments back. Why teachers cannot do the same? Help me understand it!
I specially like the discussion Eduaction Note Online has in about this matter. In a post written by Norm, the New York based blog, points out:
- I wonder if Professor McDonald has noticed that the ed deformers are trying to turn teaching into a commodity. It's all about competition and merit pay and performance of kids. Dog eat dog. So, why shouldn't teachers take advantage while they can? After all, what is coming is one script for the entire country. Every single teacher will be doing the same exact thing at the same time of the day.
So, Education & Tech will also be buying stuff. And who knows maybe selling it, too.
