Another one, second-grade teacher Stephen Round posts epic resignation video, sick of a ‘one-size-fits-all’ curriculum

Rhode Island teacher and 15-year veteran, Stephen Round, posted this video on YouTube. In it he states that he was denied the ability to read his resignation letter at a recent school committee meaning.

Round states in the video, “The school system in which I had so much pride drastically changed. Rather than creating lifelong learners, our new goal is to create good test-takers. Rather than being the recipients of a rewarding and enjoyable educational experience, our students are now relegated to experiencing a confining and demeaning education.”

In closing he states, “I would rather leave my secure $70,000 job, with benefits, and tutor in Connecticut for free than be part of a system that is diametrically opposed to everything I believe education should be.”

Well said Mr. Round.

America, this is what you are doing to your children. This will only get worse under the “educrats” precious Common Core State Standards.
