Explaining Public School Teachers

I'll say it again for the cheap seats.

The public schools are obsolete because YouTube and a decent stay at home parent can do infinitely better than they can.  Shoot, YouTube and a curious kid can outdo a teacher with a million dollars worth of taxpayer's funding.

And when you're done having a laugh, buy this book for ALL your children or any young people you care about to make sure your poor kids don't screw up their lives even more by majoring in a stupid subject.

And almost no private schools in that country.

Stole that pic! I teach at a 2yr college institution and I use YouTube alot as prep material for the students. Required viewing before they come to class. Engagement is better as a result.

Having taught for 15+ years and still going I have noticed there are three classes of student --

* Those who if you give them the book, the lesson plans and a goal won't need me as an instructor.
* Those who if you give them the book and some guidance on a regular basis will do fine.
* Those who not matter what you do, will only learn the material when they piss on the electric fence.

That latter group is the OCB team -- Other Careers Beckon.

Unknown: Why are Finnish so good? Hmmm, lets see... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finland#Demographics
From Infogalactic (the SJW-free Wikipedia):
The population of Finland is currently about 5,500,000.[9]
The share of foreign citizens in Finland is 3.4%, among the lowest in the European Union.[124] Most of them are from Russia, Estonia, and Sweden.[124]

First world people = First world.
Now lets compare that to a certain set of Twin Cities: https://www.amren.com/news/2017/02/racial-equity-department-of-education-black-crime/:
December 4, 2015, marked a turning point. That day, at Central High School, a 16-year-old student body-slammed and choked a teacher, John Ekblad, who was attempting to defuse a cafeteria fight. Ekblad was hospitalized with a traumatic brain injury. In the same fracas, an assistant principal was punched repeatedly in the chest and left with a grapefruit-size bruise on his neck. At a press conference the next day, Ramsey County Attorney John Choi branded rising student-on-staff violence “a public health crisis.” Assaults on St. Paul school staff reported to his office tripled in 2015, compared with 2014, and were up 36 percent over the previous four-year average. Attacks on teachers continued unabated in the months that followed. In March, for example, a Como Park High teacher was assaulted during a classroom invasion over a drug deal, suffered a concussion, and required staples to close a head wound.
One mother told the Pioneer Press that her seventh-grade son was viciously kicked in the groin. But “when I asked the principal why she had not contacted police, she told me, That’s your job. ” Another mother told the paper that her son had been cut with an X-ACTO knife at school. When she asked why police had not been told, an administrator drew a map to the nearest station on the back of a business card, she said. After the mother contacted the police, the first assailant was charged with misdemeanor assault and the second with a felony.

Third world people = Third world. But hey, look at the bright side, at least it's not Chicago, or Nairobi, or Baltimore, or Port-o-Prince, or Detroit, or Monrovia, or Philadelphia...
