A teacher’s resignation video


by David Safier

A second grade teacher in Providence, Rhode Island, reads his letter of resignation after a dozen years of teaching. It's worth a listen. It speaks to his frustration with the increasing "teach to the test" regimentation and how it has deadened the classroom and removed his ability to be creative. I'm always a little wary about statements like these because I don't know the back story. But what he says rings true.
