Why I Hate School But Love Education

Why are we teachers? This brilliant video has really struck a chord with me. I have been wondering why we teach, what is our purpose? What is the purpose of education? What am I hoping to achieve as a teacher? My idealistic and philosophical ideas of education have crashed like waves on a rock as I grapple with the misalignment of my ideas and C2C units, prescriptive assessment tasks and NAPLAN. How is it possible that these pathetic excuses for education are synonymous with the true purpose of education. I love that there are others out there that are challenging the institution of education.
