I'm disappointed with students who just don't seem to care in high school today. I'm disappointed with the school system that is making education so meaningless. I'm disappointed with teachers who are uninspiring. I'm disappointed with unions, labour relations, and school boards.

I quit a well-paying but dissatisfying job to pursue my love of education and become a high school teacher. I was going to make a difference. Sadly, this whole system of education seems to be one giant mess. this is combined with me realizing that I don't enjoy teaching high school students who don't care and don't appreciate the opportunity they have. Thestudents are brats, and know that a teacher really can't do much these days if they decide they don't care... And parents think their kid can't possibly be the problem. The other teachers in my class and in my practice schools are either sheep drinking the approved kool-aid, or they are mindless idiots themselves. Needless to say, I've realized that I don't want to be a teacher.

Trying my best to put this thinking aside, continue to complete assignments and the rest of my requirements so I can earn a fancy piece of paper in a fancy wood frame... A degree I don't want to use... All because I believe this year is less of a waste that way innthe eyes of friends and family than putting my tail between my legs and giving up. Thankfully the system is so broken that I wouldn't get a teaching job anyway even if this was my passion... I'm looking at positives as best I can... I have opportunity, just have to keep looking...

    This is probably the best video I've seen on this topic. It really puts the whole problem into perspective... Best of luck to you!
