"Those who can't do, teach and those who can't teach, consult"
1) Teachers are not failures in their field of interest. This is my first problem with that statement.
2) Teachers require training and certification.
3) One may have the skill to "do", but cannot "do" because there's no work. Take portraiture for example: If you're great, but people aren't looking for portraits, good luck. If you're in construction - you've probably been screwed for a while.
Sorry but that statement really pisses me off because it's not an ultimate truth, it talks down about a respected profession (or one that SHOULD be respected), and it makes it sound like people aren't doing a given profession because they aren't good enough which again is NOT always true.
And finally, tutors aren't full time educators - they help students with individual subjects, and sometimes individual parts of that subject. Any tutors are free to correct me on this, but I'm fairly certain I'm correct on this.
*not an attack, just discrediting a statement I believe is FILLED with ignorance*

"Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach" - bullshit.
