Teacher Gives Passionate Video Resignation Against the School System
Ellie Rubenstein, the veteran teacher with 15 years of experience, blasts the state of public education in the US, which she claims is now more focused on tests than children’s welfare.
She says that, “Raising students’ test scores on standardized tests is now the only goal, and in order to achieve it the creativity, flexibility and spontaneity that create authentic learning environments have been eliminated.”
Rubenstein, who taught fourth grade in Highland Park, Illinois, posted her resignation after getting fed up with the “new system” demanding “uniformity and conformity” and everything she loves about teaching is “extinct.”
Rubenstein said she had to “get out before her sense of self and self-worth was completely obliterated.” - From freepatriot.org
