MSTA video a plea for public schools
Portable classrooms, poor temperature control, over-crowded classrooms, and federal and state mandates are just some of the issues Maryland public school teachers face in a new Maryland State Teachers Association commercial (watch it below).
The two-minute video touches on some of the obstacles faced by Ms. Johnson, an art teacher, during her first day of school.
While wheeling around her cart of supplies, Ms. Johnson observes a series of deficiencies that exist in the school.
“Using a dash of humor and a heavy dose of current reality, the video highlights some of the unmet needs of Maryland’s students and schools,” the MSTA describes the video.
What do you think of the video? What are your thoughts on the video in the context of the current Thornton funding problems? Obviously it is slightly dramatic, but some of the themes are constantly raised by educators in counties large and small.
