The public sees these public educators that sport advanced degrees and automatically thinks that they're smarter than everyone else.

I have a hard time believing they feel that way.

I guess in certain quarters, but anyone who knows folks that went into teaching? Well, they run the gamut from gifted to below average, but they all succeed in getting their 'advanced' degree, even those really not remotely smarter than the average dumb person.

it is also odd, that since teaching has moved to a requirement for more degrees, the public has gotten absolutely nothing from these better trained folks.
