HS Teacher Responds To YouTuber Jake Paul’s Video Dissing Teachers
by Drew Perkins, Director of TeachThought PD
Let’s be clear, school hasn’t always been engaging and empowering for students but as I’ve said many times, teachers are passionate about their work and certainly don’t set out to bore students. With that said, this teacher from Hawley, Texas puts his own rap skills on display in response to a recent video (My Teacher) from YouTuber Jake Paul where he slams school and his teachers.
You may have heard of Jake Paul from from social media and/or YouTube or perhaps through his brother Logan whose recent video vlogging episode gone bad showed dead bodies in a Japanese “suicide forest”. While I wouldn’t give Paul much credibility in the education reform discussion we shouldn’t overlook the need for shifting teaching and learning to better meet the needs of students as we prepare them for the modern world.
