You should spend a few minutes with this video. It defends LA super-teacher Rafe Esquith in a way that makes you happy to be a school teacher (and makes me wish I was just half this good). How did they defend a teacher wrongly removed from his classroom? By sharing how he's helped his students and showing what kind of amazing adults they've grown up to be. Now that's class!
Hal Holbrook quoted Twain quote at the end. "First God Created Idiots. That was for Practice. Then he Created School Boards". That was well-placed (it was a Twain quote that got Esquith removed).
