“In medicine, if you don’t follow the standard practice, they have a word for that: malpractice. Whereas in teaching, somehow we’ve promulgated the idea that a teacher is not a professional unless she invents it by herself. In fact, it’s just the opposite. A profession is defined by a knowledge base, which allows the profession to improve its practices over time.” -James Stigler
