Can this teacher teach only your kids? I wouldn't want a teacher without a teaching degree teaching my child

why not?

"general business" isn't a hard degree by any means

accounting is hard. finance is hard. economics can be hard. but let's not act like there aren't easy business degrees

Most teachers at even mediocre schools are required to have some form of Masters or PhD in the subject they teach, if not a Masters in Education.

Can anyone saying no actually give a real reason?

I would hire the best candidate for the job. formal education means little me...once you are in the business world for a while you will learn quick that there are some worthless idiots with some of the best academic credentials out there and there are some people with high school diplomas that are indespensible.

I would hire the most talented person that fits with my business.


Obviously if the job requires some sort of technical expertise they would need to meet at least the minimum requirements for that.

In college yes. Below the college level, most only have Bachelors.

I have a poli sci degree. I am over 2 MBA's at my company. a lot of times, real world experience is WAY more valuable than an MBA. there is nothing they learned in school that I wan't able to learn in the workplace. so yeah, no reason to not hire someone with a lib arts degree if they are the best candidate for the job

Yeah. What they learned in college usually isn't that applicable anyway. I'd much rather they have a lot of good internships, plus if they did graduate work, I don't see why I wouldn't hire them.
