Check your rolodex, media, you need some new experts

Does anyone have a Rolodex anymore?

In any event, I had a thought this morning (I know, right?). When watching one of the AM MSNBC shows that sounds like all of the other MSNBC shows, I admired that, when discussing prisons, they had actual attorneys on the show. When discussing labor disputes, they had actual Wal-Mart workers on the show.

But when it comes to education, I can’t think of one actual educator or professor of education they’ve had on their shows. Can you? It seems like lawyers, doctors, and economists are entitled to their expertise, but anyone that actually works in education is NOT entitled to theirs. Or, that everyone else is just as knowledgeable because they were once a student.

Please, help me on this one.
