Could not agree more."
- C.J. Westerberg
Dramatic Video Below
This dramatic "School Sucks" video (below) by Dr. Tae - skateboarder, videographer, teacher and scientist - takes on higher education, leadership, teaching, grading, math and science ed, the role of mentoring and other highly-charged topics in a fast moving twenty-seven minutes. Tae earned his Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Illinois and he can be found at the Physics of Skateboarding.
Let us know what you think. Here's a peak excerpt from the video:
Will teachers, administrators and schools even allow non-academics to tread on their turf? To allow others outside their class walls to teach what they know?
Could not agree more.Teaching and learning should become cultural habits, not just what happens in school.
