I can understand you feel that way, you may even be right but you did not illustrated that.
Brain surgeons have a profesional degree(doctorate). People who have research degrees, such as a PhD (considered superior to professsional degrees in acedemia)
Brain surgeons make a metric crap ton more money than guy with PhD in English.
You cant compare teacher with masters in education to guy taking a management job in private industry with his MBA. They dont do the same thing, in the same place with the same skill sets.
Masters of Education does not equal MBA.
