Why should teachers have to go to college if they have a high school diploma which spells out they know the material?

I don't think it's fair if I want to be a high school teacher I'll have to waste my time learning unimportant and unhelpful material.

    Teaching and Learning are two different things. Once you understand this, and understand the importance of earning a degree in teaching, you'll see that it's not a waste of time.

    Oh brother. If you have no respect for the institution of learning,

    how in the world are you going to be a teacher. You have to

    prove that you have the self-discipline to get it done.

    Imagine this:  

    You're a kid in high school.  Would you want someone with a high school diploma teaching you?  They barely have more academic experience than you do at that point.  That'd be like a high school dropout trying to teach PhD students things about aeronautical engineering.  Seems kinda inappropriate and hypocritical, don't you think?

    The idea that you don't find it "fair" makes it clear that you need to learn a lot more before you are prepared to teach anyone anything.

    They may have learned the material, but they haven't learned how to teach it, prepare lesson plans, handle a classroom full of children making sure each one gets the attention they need, etc.

    You need a specialty to know how to deal with children and teach classes.

    College prepares you to teach the students. Learning and Teaching aren't interchangeable.
