This is crazy. A rapper called chance has decided to come out with an awards shows for teachers. I have no idea who the rapper is but the post blew up on reddit and thought it's be worth posting here. The article can be found by typing "chance rapper teacher awards" into google (I can't post links). I don't know how i feel about it. Awards for teachers? I just can't see a way it'll be truly reflective of the tough work unknown teachers do. I mean how's a teacher busting their socks off in a small town in the middle of nowhere ever going to be recognised. My gut says they'll go off whoever happened to have particularly good score increases in their class or something. In my opinion that doesn't truly take into account the effort and difference being made. It's beyond numbers. Oh god look at me ranting. I guess at the end of the day any appreciation and recognition towards the teaching profession is a great thing.
