Teacher says "I Quit!"

In it's current context, accountability is simply a code word meaning more control for people outside the classroom over those who are inside the classroom. Ever wonder why we can't get school reform right? I won't profess to have the definitive answer, but I have a feeling it has something to do with the fact that education is being run by people who have no practical experience or professional education in how children learn. What's worse is that these clueless dictators have the audacity to enforce their ignorance through manipulative legislation, and when those who know better speak up, they are beat down by the accountability club.

Take 7 minutes and listen to this frustrated veteran teacher. Then I challenge you to think about the kinds of policies and practices that might lead the students and teachers to lose their love for learning.
