What did i do wrong?

Im pretty sure i dod the code correct, is asks for the original statement to be the "Default" i did this. if some one can help id be very grateful

switch.php
<?php
//Available roles: admin, editor, author, subscriber
if (!isset($role)) {
    $role = 'subscriber';
}

//change to switch statement
/*if ($role != 'admin') {
    echo "You do not have access to this page. Please contact your administrator.";
}*/

switch($role) {
  case $role:
    echo "You do not have access to this page. Please contact administrator.";
    break;
  case 'admin':
    echo 'As an admin, you can add, edit, or delete any post.';
    break;
  default:
     echo "You do not have access to this page. Please contact your administrator.";
    break;


}

There should not be a case that uses the variable $role, since that will always match and defeat the purpose of the switch.

Just remove that entire case section and you'll pass task 1.
