As for credentials, one of the biggest problems this country has right now is credentialism.  Credentials usually mean you can’t do something, but you have a certificate that says you can still teach it.

This is so true. Having just gone through a Ph.D. program and graduating (thankfully), I have to agree with this statement. We are fixated on credentials – but all they really mean is someone paid their dues. Not that they are really an expert or qualified in that area. You can buy any credential these days if you have the money.
