These videos of a meeting between a teacher and an Ed Deform inspired data munching principal are so right on. They were done by a NYC teacher. The best part? His principal was the one who sent them to me.
Here are the accompanying comments from the teacher:
I thought you might enjoy these two XTRANORMAL MOVIES I made. They are, in the interest of humor, exaggerations of the truth. Of course, there is a grain of truth in all good parody. I believe that there are more than a few schools where these little films would not be an exaggeration at all. My parody might even be understated compared to what goes on in some schools. I am fortunate that in my school we have not reached this stage of insanity, but we can feel the pressure to which our principal is always being subjected. We just hope that things change and we get some educators into the leadership before the pressure becomes irresistible. This may be funny now, but the stakes are high and if things continue as they are, it will no longer be funny.Educational Planning, Week One
