Re: Education is no longer designed to teach.
"To be a (eg) biology teacher, you need at least a degree in the subject, preferably a masters or PhD."
Ah yes, but that is "to be a biology teacher". It's not quite the same thing as "to teach biology". For the latter, you only need a degree in something, followed by particularly bad luck when the real biology teacher drops out of the profession in October and everyone in the staff room has to draw lots for the poison chalice that is "covering for the Year 11s until we can hire a replacement".
