High School student in Duncanville ISD goes on an epic rant in class about teaching from packets. It is funny but I hope they don’t try to marginalize his opinion. Yes, it was “inappropriate” but this is a person who cares about his education. We need more students who care, more teachers who care and more people who are frustrated with the state of our educational system.
Great educators help to form the thoughts of the next generation. It’s sad that in American culture a teacher isn’t as prestigious a job as a doctor or lawyer. Check out how Finland does it. Top students become teachers, it isn’t a ‘fallback’ profession. They are incredibly well paid and the benefits are amazing as well.
None of this is to say we don’t have some amazing educators in America. We absolutely do but the system we have was designed to produce cogs for the industrial revolution era society that existed at that time. Sir Ken Robinson breaks it down in Changing Education Paradigms
