An Alternate Reality: Treating Teachers as Society’s Superstars

Chicago is preparing itself for a teacher strike. My kids are grown now but I remember the days when I worried about whether school was going to take a break mid-year. I worried about all the learning that wasn’t going to be happening if teachers weren’t there to inspire. Today I share — once again — a skit from two great comedians – Key and Peele.

I encourage you to check out TeachingCenter.

  • What if big corporations put their money behind teaching?
  • What if the schools that performed worst one year got first pick for superstar teachers in next year’s draft?
  • What if the general public held up teachers as heroes, idols even?

Great food for thought. And presented in an entertaining way. So far, nearly 7.2 million people have watched this on youtube. Now that’s inspiring. Thank you Key and Peele!

Check it out. If you’ve already seen it, check it out again! Let’s get that number over 7.3 million. And, once we’ve thought about it, maybe we will each find a way – big or small – to let great teachers we know they are appreciated. Heroes even.
