As the states scramble to get all of their programs in line with the Federal hoops to jump through to receive flexible benchmarks for the NCLB 100% proficiency cap of 2014, more and more teachers are just getting plain fed up with the profession. There's less time and less money to do their job with, and more and more emphasis placed on standardized testing that doesn't work.
But, in all of these negatives, a bit of levity is always needed.
A fellow band director posted this video on Facebook, and for those of us in the profession, it's just too good not to share. The title of this video is "...Said No Teacher Ever", so keep in mind that every statement made by these two gentlemen is the exact opposite of what teachers typically gripe about.
Teachers, have a few laughs, then go right back to doing what we do best: doing what's right for our students no matter what anyone says.
