I just tested your code and it works fine? I can't find anything wrong with it. What happens for you?

I'm not sure. You are technically correct. Perhaps try echo-ing out each switch.

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

//change to switch statement
switch ($role) {
  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;
}
