Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of Music Teachers National Association, Inc.

This investigation and everything associated with it is ludicrous on its face. In all my years of watching government interference in literally every aspect of the lives of its citizens, this tops the list as the most absurd and unnecessary attack on an organization that supports artistic education I have ever seen. The only possible reason for something like this I can imagine is that an unscrupulous person somewhere wants to steal another teacher's students, and the MTNA Code of Ethics interferes with that objective. Shame on the FTC for bothering busy teachers with this nonsense.
