Teacher Wendy Bradshaw recently had her own kid, and it seems like holding a baby that might someday pass through America's educational system lit a fire under her ass to speak out about how terrible that system has become. Bradshaw worked in Florida's Polk County and specialized in younger children, infant through fifth grade. The strict standardization that higher grades have been subjected to for years has been making its way down, beginning to touch even pre-schoolers with test-based learning. This forces teachers into narrower and narrower teaching plans that aren't conducive to actual learning. After sending in her letter of resignation, Bradshaw posted it on Facebook where it has now been shared over 50,000 times.
