This teacher isn’t the first, and she most likely will not be the last.

Last winter, the web was shocked when a career teacher in Rhode Island quit from his post by reading his resignation later on the Internet.

The reason for stepping down, he said, was because for decades now the education system has blindly worshiped standardized testing in place of actual learning and teaching. 

Now, a second teacher has posted her resignation letter on YouTube for the exact same reasons. 

Veteran teacher I Quit You Can’t Fire Me says that like so many teachers, she wanted to help her community as a teacher, and loved the hard work.

But over the past 15 years she has noticed a disturbing trend that countless other teachers and parents are picking up on. 

“The emphasis in education has shifted from fostering academic and personal growth to demanding uniformity and conformity. Raising students’ test goals is now the only goal in teaching. Everything I loved about teaching is extinct.”

The First of April was nearly two months ago, but this straggler April Fools prank video by Kurtec01 has only been posted now, quickly amassing over 200,000 views.

In the prank video, a school bus driver quiets the bus to tell the students an announcement. He claims that because of special circumstances he was going to drop them off as usual, only this time the students would immediately board back onto the bus to be taken back home. 

“Apparently, you have another day of Spring Break,” he ended with to which the students erupted into a fit of cheers and screams. 

The screaming seems to go on forever until a couple students start to get a little suspicious. Slowly, the cheering calms among the doubtful until the driver jumps and screams, “Who said? What’s today’s date? April Fools! I got everyone of you!”

Naturally, the children break out into an even greater fit of fury and screams. 

Shrieks of “I hate you!” and “WTH?!” can be heard as the driver laughs and laughs at the misery of the children be taken off to school.

Too many teachers simply read from a packet they downloaded off the web and call that teaching. Well, Jeff had enough packet learning from his high school teacher Mrs. Phung at Duncanville High.

After apparently being kicked out of class, it was Jeff, surprisingly, who gave the teacher a disciplinary speech on her poor teacher abilities and attitude.

“If you would just get up and teach ‘em instead of handing them a freakin packet, yo! There’s kids in here who don’t learn like that,” he starts.

“I’m telling you what you need to do,” he continues. “You want kids to come into your class? You want them to get excited for this? You gotta come in here and make them excited. You want a kid to change and start doing better? You gotta touch his freakin’ heart. Can’t expect a kid to change if all you do is just tell ‘em.”

YouTuber starsoftrackandfield couldn’t help noticing Jeff’s resemblance to a late rock star, adding, “Wow Kurt Cobain is really passionate about education.”
