You know the saying, those who can’t do, teach? Well, unfortunately for parents across the country, that saying has become a way of life. Allana Harkin interviews education experts and teachers to get a lesson in teacher appreciation.

This piece was produced by Todd Bieber with Grace Leeson and edited by Jesse Coane.

    I totally need to contact all my old teachers and apologize for years of being a complete monster. I go the time, after all.

    In about 10 weeks Norway went from worst to best on the Covie Charts. What they did right was contact tracing and didn’t wait to get serious. Kids are going back to school this week!

    1:48 Teachers have always been all those things. Always.
    4:23 Yes, here is the teacher saying it, too.

    This new appreciation for teachers is great, but it will fizzle when teachers ask for higher pay and taxes go up……

  • Luciana Tykhelle 2 years ago

    Thank you, Samantha! I dkn why, but I got really emotional watching this. In Norway, the schools give every student a google chrome and everybody has internet and it is still difficult.

    Sam; you’ve done something with your hair, and you voice… and your face.

  • Dianne Yudelson 2 years ago

    I’m pro public school teachers …my dad was one, but shaming homeschoolers is uncalled for, especially when disguising it as comedy.

    You have 1 000 000 subscribers as I watch this. I unsubbed and resubbed, making me the second one millionth subscriber. Do I win something? Oh, and congrats!

    The worst part of all is that this pandemic proves that video conferencing technology is still absolute garbage. Half the time I can understand what anyone is saying, meanwhile my YouTube streams at 1080p just fine. Not equivalent but come on… We should have solutions to this by now!

    I guess I lucked out, I’m a career nanny and this is not new to me.

    Former teacher here. Spent career in “poverty” schools. Truth #1: If parents can’t find living wage work they have a hard time valuing education. After all what did it do for them? Truth #2: Pele learned to play football with a tin can. If the kid really wants to learn the kid will. Truth #3: Parents – do you feel excited when you learn something new? Parents convey your love of knowledge to your kids. Let them know it’s important, and not just for money, let them know knowledge is important in and of itself.

    Psst. Hey guys. You really want to know how to homeschool? Here’s an idea: why don’t you ask…ACTUAL HOMESCHOOLERS???! Because trying to turn the standardized content of public schools into an at-home experience is NOT homeschooling. Stop calling it that.

    Teachers are one of the few, if not the only, professions where you can’t deduct all of your business expenses on your income tax. They were singled out in the reform bill a few years ago and for example, 2019 was capped at $250 single/$500 married filing jointly. Think of that when you listen to stories of teachers printing out worksheets and mailing them to their students – likely unreimbursed costs. That is an extreme level of hostility against a necessary profession by the Republican Congress. But in the same law, private jet fuel was made tax deductible.

    I didn’t know Cardi B doubled as a middle school teacher

  • spthibault 2 years ago

    I was home schooled and public schooled. In Middle and HS, my advice (I finished at 16 because I finished all my work in HS early due to not being distracted by peers) is, teach them what they already want to know, and hitch that to what they need to know. Also, give them a text book and if they want to read it on a tire swing they built? Use that to teach them cause and effect, how a pendulum works, oh… and they still read a text book. Just sayin, my mom was cunning like that. Lol
