It's pretty frustrating. I understand how overworked and underpaid

Professionally, I'm quite qualified to teach at our local community
college, in that I have a good understanding of writing and of
computer science, among other things. I've been doing this tech
writing stuff for [more time than I like to think about] and doing
it fairly well.

But EDUCATIONALLY I'm not qualified at all. Why? I've only got
a bachelor's degree, not a master's!

My wife took a course in accounting at the community college, and
found that she was spending a lot of time teaching the other
students the stuff that the instructor (who DID have a master's
degree) was getting wrong. She finally managed to get the instructor
relieved of her duties. But that's only because accounting is
not as squishy as English, oops, I mean Textual Studies.
