Fed Up: Teacher Resigns in Scathing YouTube Video

“I thought I would be a teacher for the rest of my life,” Ellie Rubenstein says in a YouTube video resignation which has begun to go viral. “Everything I love about teaching is extinct.”

Rubenstein is a teaching veteran who has been in the Chicago area (Highland Park) for 15 years. She made the decision to leave her position after her district decided to transfer her and several other teachers who routinely vocalized feelings about standardized testing and district-mandated curriculum.

“Raising students’ test scores on standardized tests is now the only goal, and in order to achieve it the creativity, flexibility, and spontaneity that create authentic learning environments have been eliminated.”

Watch the entire resignation below.

“They want to take away my freedom to nurture my students and help them grow,” she continues. “I too am backing down, with a sad, heavy heart. I hereby submit my resignation.”
