An elementary school teacher in the Providence Public Schools has taken to YouTube to offer his resignation and air out his frustrations with district policies that he believes places too much emphasis on test taking.
In the nearly seven-minute video, Stephen Round, who has taught in Providence schools since 1999, lays out his concerns over a variety of issues, including social interaction for students, recess and the lack of flexibility that comes from a culture so focused on test results.
“I’ve had it, I quit,” he says in the video.
