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

I disagree with the FTC's proposed consent agreement for the following reasons: (1) MTNA is a community of teachers and the Ethics Code was to guide how members act in this particular community. It was not economically driven. (2) MTNA represents only a fraction of music teachers and the FTC seems to be over-reacting to act as though the organization is influencing the marketplace. (3) MTNA has already agreed to take out the portion of the Ethics Code that the FTC is concerned with. To force MTNA to do further work with their limited staff and resources puts an unfair hardship on the organization.
