Turning Teachers Into Children

Take a look at that video above. It was shot inside a teacher development class in the Chicago public school system. It’s short, just over a minute, but it’s enough. If I were one of those teachers, I would want to pick up my chair and throw it at the instructor. Why on earth would one want to be a teacher when the administration for which one works infantilizes one to that degree? It is incredibly degrading.
