Don't jeopardize our supply of rope!
Lol no kidding. Or in the case of killing first responders with drone strikes like the US, everyone can just look the other way. You think the Red Cross would be more interested in that, given that they are first responders, but no, video games. Must interfere with video games.
Vaporization is not the same as hydrolysis. Vaporisation means liquid turning to vapor.
"The problem is, how do we fix it? Having many friends and family members who are teachers, I can also 100% say that education classes don't confer any particular ability to teach either."
Yup I agree. I hesitate to say that teacher training is the only or even best solution (having a BEd myself) but I think it's probably a good place to start.
How dare students expect to be properly taught by people they are paying to teach them?
You didn't actually challenge my assertion that a PhD doesn't confer an ability to teach, rather you merely acknowledged that the teachers suck and then claim that students are entitled for expecting to get any kind of value out of their expensive tuition dollars. If in your world the only thing a degree confers is an ability to acquire knowledge independently, then all a university is is a massively overpriced testing facility.
Beware of the Turing Tar-pit in which everything is possible but nothing of interest is easy.
