video: Providence School Teacher Quits, Rips School District

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.
