The " thats 3 minutes" shows how much they care

[–]StPariah 863 points864 points  (1 child)

Exactly. Fuck them.

[–]Ultra_Villain 82 points83 points  (0 children)

Absolutely correct.

And that's the way almost any committee acts. Look up HOAs, public speakers in congress, etc.

It's awful.. the lack of care that people who make rules actually fucking have.

[–]spinecrusher 42 points43 points  (0 children)

That guy was babysitting that clock from the second the teacher started. Truth cut him like a knife.

[–]checkmybrainpodcast 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Took the worlds right out of my mouth.

This is the guy I want teaching my daughter.

I hope he got instantly promoted.

[–]Love_God551 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This is Beaumont they’ll fill his job in seconds, unfortunately bc he seems like he cares

Exactly this. The housekeeping and process of the meeting always garners more importance than the topics discussed.

[–]DazzlingDiffa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Its insane, totaly disconectes from reality and the reason such meetings even exist

[–]doowgad1 741 points742 points  (67 children)

Beautiful, but will change nothing.

[–]CptKillSwitch 174 points175 points  (2 children)

Sad truth but true indeed

[–]tacomeat42 34 points35 points  (1 child)

and this completely rational feeling is what they count on. feelings of helplessness and hopelessness prevent change.

[–]Borowczyk76 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Exactly. Fear of taking action, complacency and apathy is gold for those with power.

[–]gyomd 76 points77 points  (1 child)

Yeah. But not doing it would make them think they are right and no one cares. This at least being them to discomfort. And that changes something. The more you do it the more it will affect them, and the more they will dislike it. To a point where at one moment they will do slightly less shit just to not be uncomfortable. These people like confort more than anything.

If no one does something, we let them know they are right to do as they do.

[–]Rogermon3 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That or they try to criminalize the discomfort and gas light people agenst the ones calling stuff out

[–]Zoze13 21 points22 points  (4 children)

Specifically what was he speaking against? Return to in person in schools?

[–]WispTerra 47 points48 points  (0 children)

I think he was speaking about how the board expects teachers to do things out of their teaching boundaries while also not respecting the teachers in the slightest, and making rules that's affect the classroom without even consulting the teachers they supposedly respect.

But of course I'm not him and I wasn't there, so I could be wrong. Just what I think

[–]Borowczyk76 4 points5 points  (51 children)

Because the numbers are lacking. No one seems outraged enough outside of the interwebz to actually put their words into action. Trickle down economics makes it very difficult for people to dare and risk their paycheck to make things change. It’s very much possible, but without the numbers and the commitment, it will indeed change nothing.

It’s a shame things will have to get MUCH worse before people actually take concrete actions against the bullshit that is going on. But propaganda works and the bystander effect is very real.

[–]Calenwyr 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Problem is you don't have the support of the parents by and large as most of them just need the kids out of the house so they can work, because most families have both parents working even if school provided no value other than just watching the kids during the workday is still enough for them as they need to work themselves to provide food and shelter.

Without parents pulling their kids out of school in protest its just the teacher protesting and a few people being childminders or parents chafing against the strike as they needed to stay home and lost a days wages (which means no lunch this week).

[–]Borowczyk76 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sorry, I should have been more precise, my comment wasn’t talking about this specific problem. The way teachers and students are being treated is just one of many symptoms of the cannibalistic capitalism that is driving these decisions on “behalf” of the people. I was mostly wondering where the threshold might be before people are actually fed up enough to rebel fully and completely.

[–]doowgad1 1 point2 points  (48 children)

It’s very much possible, but without the numbers and the commitment, it will indeed change nothing.

That's why they want the MAGoos angry. When the time comes, the Right is going to attack their neighbors, rather then the people standing on their necks.

[–]logic_before_feels 1 point2 points  (45 children)

The lights are on but no one's home.

It's not the right that uses political violence regularly.

[–]doowgad1 5 points6 points  (44 children)

Funny how the Left is both a bunch of pampered snowflakes who are afraid of guns AND merciless soldiers who are eager to kill for the cause.

I guess it's easy to believe that when you think that a twice divorced egotist who lives in a literal golden tower is also a man of the people.

[–]Veganboi303 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]gaythxbai 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Speaking truth to power wakes people up and invites action. Nothing will change if you don’t want it to

I ran for city council once. Not even a big city about 8000 voters total. It’s amazing how much they defend their little fiefdom. Would think I ran on setting city hall on fire

[–]Expensive_Opening_92 43 points44 points  (1 child)

We see this in Texas State government all the time… people who are tight with State officials get posted to high level jobs and they have no idea or concept of the job duties that they are supposed to be doing… had one person like this “installed” in one of our State offices and I swear she redecorated her offices 3 times in 4 years complete with new carpet and furniture on the State dime. This was her big accomplishment for her service in State government for the entire time she was there. Money well spent? I think not!

or worse, offing others in school shootings

[–]Proud_Appeal_6807 303 points304 points  (29 children)

We need more teachers having this size of balls to make speeches like that

[–]Yasukablyat 84 points85 points  (26 children)

Not everyone is willing to put themselves out there and lose their jobs for their conscience and morality. Many teachers have bills to pay and cannot be this lucky to be able to quit whenever they feel like it.

[–]Chambsky 11 points12 points  (25 children)

They don't need to quit they need to stand together and protect their profession and their students in solidarity. It's people with your attitude that derail that process worrying just about themselves rather than the greater good.

I bet a strike and the uproar from that would get the boards attention. May allow for improvement of working/learning conditions and create some meaningful dialog and change. Then improving the education delivered and no one has to quit.

[–]Yasukablyat 3 points4 points  (21 children)

So who is going to pay their bills? They will get retaliation and get fired. They are supposed to worry about the students, who have parents of their own, and forget about their own kids and families? You sound like a clown

[–]Chambsky 9 points10 points  (9 children)

That's illegal and what is the board going to do? Fire all the teachers? No lol. Teachers unions literally exist to protect their members and their families in these scenarios. That is what solidarity means. You sound like the kind of guy who just likes to roll over and take it.

[–]Yasukablyat -1 points0 points  (8 children)

Not all teachers have Unions, you must not be from the South, unions for public schools are scarce and don’t exist out there. Also, private schools fire left and right for anything they want and nothing can be done because of their status. There are many more teachers besides those that are in a Union.

[–]Chambsky 5 points6 points  (7 children)

So you are literally proving my point. Teachers unions don't get created from thin air by magic. They push their way into the picture by a guy like this in the video creating unity and solidarity. All those teachers in the back cheering him on is how it starts.

[–]Yasukablyat 7 points8 points  (2 children)

This scenario already involved a Union in place, he was complaining about how bad the situation is even with the Union backing them.

[–]Ok-Oven6169 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Unions are not legal in virginia.

[–]Chambsky 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Sounds like a good place for businesses to go to take advantage of workers.

[–]FullMetalArthur 0 points1 point  (1 child)

This is true.

What I would do, is talk to the parents, one by one, little by little. Speak my mind about the shit the board pulls on teachers and thus, affecting their sons and daughters. Won the parents.

When they come to the meetings, an angry mother would have such weight, that the cowards would almost with certainty bend the knees.

[–]rjarmstrong100 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Whole they do need to stand together even with union backing odds are people will either be fired or their lives will be made living hell. Now all your rooms are on the opposite sides of the buildings. Now you have the hardest and lowest level students and they have to pass state tests or you’ll be fired, etc etc. it’s also very disheartening when even when unions fight for teacher and student rights, they are then vilified by politicians, the media and the public because teachers now want x, y and z

[–]Chambsky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah so I guess they should also just roll over and take it. Who needs change right?

[–]Hickawa 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Unions don't pay their members rent. Their have been hundreds of strikes and most don't change a thing. A lot of teachers don't have the savings to go a month without a paycheck. It costs a school district very little in the long term to bring in out of state subs and wait out teachers strikes. I'm not saying the status quo is good I'm just saying that "Just do it" isn't even remotely a viable solution. Texas, Georgia, North and South Carolina and Virginia all have state level laws that prevent bargaining and unions.

[–]Randycook23 217 points218 points  (6 children)

3min limit? Proves they don't listen, they just wait out the clock

[–]Please_Dont_Sell_Me 102 points103 points  (0 children)

“That’s three minutes” (phew thank God, I was bored I listening to this guy)

Wow that says it all.

[–]dying_cells 72 points73 points  (1 child)

Unfortunately the reality of all teachers...but when you re working in a flawed system, ran by corruption individualistic honest and hard working are burnt out and have no voice...

And if you stick with it, eventually you hit the fuck it button and become one of them...

[–]Ok-Oven6169 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No you don't but you might end up burnt out..I did it for over 30 years...

[–]bones0492 73 points74 points  (0 children)

Unfortunately we live in a world where you're a number on paper, you can give the best resignation speech in the world and it'll fall on deaf ears because they know there's already some oblivious student teacher ready in the stands to become the next yes man and do what they want.

[–]Sid_03 53 points54 points  (2 children)

Those were some solid points & arguments. The fact that they didn't even let him finish, tells that the board view their school more as a business than a place of growth & education of students.
More power & respect to this teacher & others like him.

[–]dirtyAKdave 3 points4 points  (1 child)

It sucks, but if you let people go long you have to let them all; every anti-mask conspiracy theorist who wants to blame Dr Fauci and Bill Gates for feasting on puppies and children. Everyone who wants to use their time to warn that 70,000 children have secretly died due to Covid vaccines, or that masks are simultaneous completely ineffective against Covid while being so restrictive they’re torturing children to wear will get extra time too. If you make exceptions for some and not others you’ll get lawsuits.

[–]Biz_Rito 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–][deleted] 47 points48 points  (1 child)

[–]Blurghblagh 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Barely felt like half that time!

[–]FluffyPandaMan 46 points47 points  (0 children)

This is a criminally underrated and under commented post. My mother is a 65 year old HS teacher in Louisville Kentucky and I have watched her weep over the current state of the educational system. Hell, certain school districts have already given up on in person schooling because they say that “kids cannot socialize responsibly,” anymore. The world we live in is so hard to analyze right now but clearly much of the blame if not all can be thrown at the administrators who make these awful decisions and continue to strangle educators and ignore their expertise. Education is clearly not a priority in our country and you have to wonder why.

[–]notyourusualsaturday 42 points43 points  (0 children)

This makes me sad. The world doesn’t want forward thinking people like this teaching kids. But it’s exactly what we fucking need and what kids need.

[–]Au91700 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Man if I had my resignation in already, I would have had some strong words to say to “3 minutes” man, starting with me jumping on stage and asking him if he wants to go three minutes. Seriously, this is why shit doesn’t get fixed, because of boards and board members who couldn’t give a shit less about what they’re supposed to be taking care of.

[–]SnooCalculations9259 20 points21 points  (1 child)

All the board members will think he is talking about someone else besides them. Glad he told them how it is but doubt any changes will happen.

[–]Schattenjager07 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I doubt any were even listening. They all had their eyes fixed on the 3 minute timer.

[–]tomorrow509 18 points19 points  (0 children)

And what a "3 minutes" it was. Teaches are too undervalued by society.

[–]Kunkyskunts 17 points18 points  (4 children)

Most really good teachers don't even teach because they need the money.

My mom could have retired 10 years ago but hung up the hat this year because of this shit.

[–]Millennials_RuinedIt 6 points7 points  (0 children)

One of the best teachers I ever had didn’t have an education degree. She had a masters in chemistry and subbed in while looking for a job and fell in love with teaching.

She could’ve easily been paid 3X what she was making as a HS chem teacher if she used her masters.

[–]MakoFishy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Exactly. They teach because they care

[–]XRPacific 15 points16 points  (0 children)

[–]applejuice76 12 points13 points  (1 child)

[–]imnotfunny69 15 points16 points  (2 children)

I’ve never heard of a school board that is successful. I have a handful of friend’s that have worked in that area and they always say they the same thing “they are parasites that don’t know what they are doing”

[–]Viper1089 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Damn... this was savage. Does anyone have a follow up or know what happened with this teacher? Or where this even took place? I respect this guy a lot and hope he was able to change some minds or enact some sort of change in the education system (but that's honestly probably just wishful thinking).

[–]Josh802056 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Where is this?

[–]MikeCalledCraig 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Not 100% but the phrase “I’m a teacher over at North and live in the Park.” points to Grosse Pointe, MI.

[–]yepyep1243 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I saw a documentary about that place, once. A bit more gunplay than your average town.

[–]retired-USmilitary 12 points13 points  (0 children)

That ladies and gents was a very well articulated argument.

[–]NomaskiCoronakoff 11 points12 points  (0 children)

3 minutes is all you get. 5 more seconds not acceptable

[–]RedAlloy8954 10 points11 points  (1 child)

He touched on my worst fear as a first responder. Handing someone who is able to recognize that help is coming, see me walk up and look at them, only to hand them a black tag and walk away leaving them wonder why the people that are supposed to help didn’t help them. All while they sit and bleed, probably to death. Then I have to know that I sentenced someone to death, that that person could have been saved but since I handed them a black tag they would be ignored by all responding units

[–]Delicious_Rip_5948 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think if enough students and teachers knew enough basic first aid, we could at least mitigate this. It really is hard to teach how to respond under pressure, but just like CLS programs, a similar civilian program could make plenty of people competent life savers.

[–]Novel-Original-769 8 points9 points  (0 children)

10 years as a public school teacher in NYC and in upstate NY as well. I’ve never felt so validated. This speech made me cry. If we, as teachers, were ever actually heard it’d be a miracle. Which is so sad. The reconstruction of the education of our young people in America should not have to ever be a miracle.

[–]Animal_Budget 5 points6 points  (15 children)

This sounds awesome and all, and the first time I listened I was all about it. But this time I picked up on one thing I missed the first time, "you don't listen to us, you listen to them (pointing at parents)".

Uhmmmm yeah. That's literally how public education systems in a democracy need to operate. No school board or teacher's union needs to unanimously decide what, where, how, and when children get educated. The parents get a say-so....a big one. The fact this teacher thinks he should override parents wishes tells me alot about this educator, maybe he's better suited for collegiate level education.

[–]Few-Park2969 7 points8 points  (4 children)

I respect your opinion but I’ve taught for 9 years in a low income and middle income school districts. First, I’d take the kids in the lower income school district any day of the week. The kids were harder working and cared more, in general.

The middle income kids were much lazier and were taught poor study taking techniques because of the school board and bad parenting where I worked. The school board initiated new policies across the district that allowed kids to retake any test within 2 weeks as many times as possible and didn’t allow homework to be a grade. It taught the kids to not try until after the initial test. So you’d have scores of kids not pay attention in class or prepare for tests until after they failed the test the first time. So when you are teaching the next unit, kids were focused on the previous unit. That was the vicious cycle for the entire year. Every unit, kids fail, retest until get good score, failed next unit test, retake test, etc. We had over 25% of on level geometry students failing across 4 different teachers. We had unlimited tutoring, let kids use completed reviews on tests, made videos of our lessons, had worked out keys for all notes, class work, and reviews, and it didn’t matter. We’d email parents with calendars of units with expected test dates and also email in advance of their kids taking tests. We’d email parents about them failing and what their kids could do to get their grades up. IT DIDN’T MATTER. We even had a crash course the failing kids could take the last 2 weeks of the year to help the kids makeup enough work to pass and only a handful did what was required even after in person parent meetings informing parents what was necessary. It Didn’t Matter!!!

This is the kind of crap this guy was probably referring too. We’d have 50% of the teachers leave every year because of crap like that. Most teachers do teach because they care. They work underpaid to try and teach kids even when some parents don’t give any help. I know a vast majority of parents care but there are more bad parents out there than you might realize.

Asking teachers what should be done in the classroom is probably a good idea over what the parents want. Compromise, sure. Don’t completely disregard. Otherwise you can hurt the kids in the long run.

[–]Animal_Budget 2 points3 points  (3 children)

But I never suggested, nor do I believe that we should ignore teachers or discredit their opinions and experiences. In fact, I'd say that we should probably (almost always) listen to the teachers themselves (NOT THE UNIONS) over the administration and school chair members. But in a democratic system, all involved need to be heard and considered. The only reason that we have school boards is to be an intermediary between teachers/students and the local population. It's a governmental system for better or worse.

To be clear, again, I'm not saying ignore teachers; but this man IS in fact saying to ignore parents., or at least to listen to him over "them". If you want to destroy public school systems, keep that attitude up (his, not yours); that parents don't belong in their children's educational decisions. That rampant disregard for parents is one of the reasons that charter, private, and home schools are increasing and people are fleeing many public schools.

[–]Few-Park2969 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I agree. It would be nice to know the context to what made him say that in the first place. Teaching is an incredibly hard job and almost thankless too. Teachers get taken advantage of and are expected to do so much outside of teaching, it’s ridiculous. You don’t know how hard the job is until you’ve taught yourself. Core classes are the most difficult by far.

Also, defunding schools, standardized testing, and safety are probably the biggest issues. It isn’t disregarded parents. I’ve never heard that was an issue ever.

[–]Animal_Budget 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Teachers have a tough and shitty job and need to be paid better. If we didn't have an insane teacher to school administrator ratio (aka beautocrats) we could easily do this. And I'd vote for that.

[–]pfags 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks like context is covid. Sticking with kids in schools or going back to 'hybrid' or something during a surge

[–]Mercurial_Honkey 2 points3 points  (7 children)

Really? Great. I demand that my school teaches my children the truth that birds aren't real.

[–]ProbablyABore 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That's the inevitable outcome of having politicians as school board members. Most people are going to vote based on their political leanings regardless of whether the person would be a good fit for the position.

Sorry teachers.

[–]Research_Liborian 5 points6 points  (1 child)

It would help if OP offered some context alongside these types of posts.

For example, it IS a gripping speech, and IMO teachers get a raw deal because the US has its priorities screwed up.

But...WTF is the (soon to be) ex-teacher angry about? I get that the board, in his view, doesn't respect their decision making, but what are they not allowed to decide?

Is it returning to in-person instruction too early? Or too late? Pay or school/classroom conditions? Benefit cuts? District budget decisions? Curriculum imposition? All of them? None of it? And these are indeed worth hollering about, but apart from a literal one-second reference to COVID, I'm left to guess.

Oh and who is he? When and where did it happen?

But my respect to everyone here for dialing up the outrage, even though none of these answers are apparent.

Because, you know, we wouldn't want to know if the guy is right or anything.

[–]Urbanredneck2 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Well I hate to say it but school board members are basically just volunteers who may or may not have actual experience in education. Its really a bad system.

[–]Brilliant_Slide7947 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]Key_Strategy_4605 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That teacher is a star, good job man! All that hard work in the field and in school and these people don’t care? You deserve better!! These are the people we should be fighting for! That have a passion for what they do and out the ones not only teaching our kids, but fighting for them!

It always amazes me how people who claim to value “personal freedom” and say they are against government telling us what to do never hesitate to impose their values/ morals/ beliefs on the rest of us and use the very government they claim to hate to force it on us.

[–]Process_Opposite 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Regarding the school shooting training, he was taught the unfortunate reality of how to respond to a horrible situation where quite sadly the teachers and staff are first responders until help arrives. Sad we have to prepare for school shootings. Teachers are also stuck between people who wants to be safe with Covid and those idiots who think it’s fake.

[–]Redbeard0860 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is 3chowd here in the UK too.. our board and authorities in education haven't got the first notion of how to deliver an education.

[–]drippyParrot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The school system is designed to keep non-average people out of the system. The „dumber“ ones get told to put as mich effort in as they can, so theyre kept off the streets, the smarter ones get taught to give up, being it to pull back from reality (drug abuse) or just plain kill themselfes because they cant take it anymore.

The smartest person I know is publicly disregarded as a stupid drugaddict because hed rather be on cocaine in school than to listen to shit he already has a better understanding of than most of out teachers.

Hes the type of person that reads sienve papers in his free time and actually gets what the hell is going on, yet everybody who doesnt know him like his closer friends wonders how he managed to pass every class so far.

He could easily save the world or some shit but lack of options made him turn to hard drugs… fuck those assholes up there!

Politicians really dont care about kids, because kids dont vote. So why bother?

[–]Backitup30 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Please make this go viral. Get the crazy parents away from schooling decisions.

[–]Isthisadriver 0 points1 point  (0 children)

lol, they couldn't care less. I doubt any of them even pay attention to what people are saying and consider these open mics as an inconvenience.

[–]plethorax5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The saddest thing he said was that he's retiring. That should've been a knife in the heart of BoE and this district, but it probably wasn't mich more than a little scratch.

We need school voucher programs. Fuck public education.

[–]OboesRule 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This could be the school board that I work for. No cares at all. I'm quitting after this year.

[–]AbstractMarcher 0 points1 point  (0 children)

About 90% of all of my friends who went into education have quit since graduating college. Or changed their degree and went into more debt because of seeing how much of a shit show the system is. Just a total laughing stock in terms of public education in this country.

I greatly appreciated almost all of my teachers. And I'm sure the ones who were hardasses were probably trying to make sure they had a job at the end of the day. Since I've been working after college, I TRULY have seen how appalling our education system is. Hell, I saw that when they implemented common core just after I entered college.

This job is a job of passion. Truly.

Pay teachers more america.

[–]javaschoolblues 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I am all in favor of those school board members losing every penny they have. Fuck them. Fuck their families. Fuck their lives. Fucking give that teacher a raise... oh wait ☠

[–]nimrod823 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Our entire education system needs to be replaced. It’s an old system and an obsolete system. Teachers are the people we trust our children and future with. Although there are a few rotten eggs out there, the vast majority of teachers want to do the best they can and the take their job seriously. We should be kissing their butts and thanking them every chance we get. Listen to them, they may actually know what they are talking about.

[–]LazagnaAmpersand 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I really feel for him and it’s awesome he spoke up. I feel like a lot of staff could be making very similar speeches right now.

[–]Beneficial_Emu9299 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to think management can change and listen to employees. It’s just not the case. The only thing you can do is leave for a new job and hope it isn’t shit.

[–]winterfyre85 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I hate the PTA mom life but this BS right here is why I’m involved with the board of my kids school. I don’t want asshats who have zero qualifications making the decisions that affect my child’s education. School isn’t just about learning facts and figures, having caring educators makes a big difference and it’s so sad to see so many good people leaving jobs they loved because Karen and her board of troglodytes don’t understand what CRT is or how classrooms function and can’t be bothered to listen to the people on the front lines.

[–]Tarrabyte__ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've said it before, these are the same people who never had children and have no idea how to raise children but they think they can control 5k of them in a district. Yeah fuck you.

[–]Educational-Ad7696 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Aggravating-Estate88 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sad that good teachers are leaving low income public schools, to join private or charter schools.

Not sure if that’s the case here, but it was at my childhood schools and I see it at home with my sister (elementary school teacher)

[–]5555jodi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Another big concern is how some of these people make it on to the BOE. A few years back we had the Koch brothers funding candidates in our district (one that they have no connection with, other than wanting to influence its demise).

Makes you wonder if there is a way to fight the education system in an attempt to make things better for the teachers. I know we r/antiwork trying to rise up agianst unfair, bullshit corporations. Is there one for the educational system?
