The decision by the FTC to attack MTNA for a code of ethics that is, and has been, common practice for music educators for years is absurd. No one from the MTNA ever told me about this code of ethics. They didn't need to. It is common practice. You don't try to steal another teacher's students. It's a matter of professional courtesy and ethics, and has absolutely NOTHING to do with price fixing. I suggest the FTC stick to investigating companies and large conglomerates and leave the professional associations alone.
