by star English teacher Ruby Ruhf has sent teaching fans

that I’m taking my talents back to New York City.
Thank you very much. Apparently, PS431 has made Ruby
an offer she couldn’t refuse. $80 million guaranteed
over six years, with another $40 million
in incentives based on test scores. This salary puts her
right up there with Rockridge Elementary’s
Katie Hope and William Wu
out of– Colgate Magnet! All right, let’s take a look
at yesterday’s high school teacher draft
from Radio City Music Hall, where Central Rapids High, recipient of the worst
test scores last semester, made the first pick
that was no surprise to anyone. [all cheering] For the first pick,
Central Rapids High takes… calculus teacher Mike Yoast
from Tulsa Teacher’s College. [all cheering] (Key)
And just like that,
you’re a millionaire. Ha ha. (Peele)
Mike Yoast
is an unbelievable story, his father living
from paycheck to paycheck as a humble
pro football player. Kid was a natural mathlete. You know he’s gonna buy
his mom a house. – Oh, you know this.
– Oh, there’s no way – around that.
– [laughs] You owe your mom.

– Whoo. Confederate forces
fired first. Can anyone tell me
where this battle took place? Now, look at this. She looks left,
then right, looks past the students
with their arms up in the air, – spots Max near the back…
(Key) Whoo. Sees that even though his hand
isn’t up, he’s engaged. Max? It was Fort Sumter? That’s right. Oh, come on.
See what she did there? She’s bringing a introvert
into the discussion, y’all. That’s a teacher of the year
play right there. That’s right, Boyd.
You know, the confidence gained by Max by answering
that question correctly will enhance his performance
throughout the rest of the year. No doubt.

French teacher Janeane Lowe to Skyline High
for a head librarian and two lunch ladies
to be named later. And we’ll get the inside scoop
on the impending – teacher’s strike that could…

  1. You’d have to privatize education first and probably abolish compulsory education. This is inaccurate because teachers unions and bureaucrats and all the brainwashed idiots wouldn’t have that.

  2. The reason for the difference in pay is simply supply and demand: jobs that many people can do tend to get paid less than jobs very few people can do. They are many, many teachers in the United States, and many more people could teach if they wanted to. Not all teachers do that good of a job. Professional athletes, however, are very rare. Very few people could do that job even if they trained very hard. So, it tends to be paid much higher.

  3. It’s the small, subtle jokes like the number 1 draft pick being the son of a pro athlete that makes these skits hilarious

  4. I hope it will become truth some day! I’ve left academia because international industry gives much better opportunities than some countries’ academia. One part because of corrupted government based organizations management

  5. Did no one notice the Parnabus Jackson Scandal reference on the coming up next scroll?🤣🤣🤣That was one of my favorite Key and Peele skits!!

  6. Yes, imagine if the people who educated an entire generation of kids got paid as much as men who run around in tights and kick balls?! An idea!

  7. Well I got an idea! These schools need to start making money somehow so we can pay the teachers higher wages cause some of them do deserve it

  8. Yes this is a teacher’s fantasy but if the best teacher’s are treated like this then the bad teachers would get fired. But the Teacher’s Union does not allow the bad teachers to be fired, which is a big part of the problem with schools.

  9. I want to live in this universe. Instead teachers don't get respect from anyone and get blamed for everything. I doubt there any other country where kids are allowed to verbally, physically, and sexually harass their teachers.

  10. I love all the TV cameras in the classroom lmao. I wonder how this would play out if a private school started recording their classes (putting each lesson up on YouTube) and then at the end of each week doing an ESPN breakdown like this

  11. How to get pass every question in school.

    Just raise your hand up and the teacher will overlook you for a student who doesn’t has his hand up.

  12. Man… I wish this was actually real. I wish the world wasn't such trash to teachers all over. My mom was a teacher before retirement and she has been teaching for over 40 years. And I honestly am so proud of her. I don't think I'm ever going to be 1/10 of who she is. Teachers deserve so much respect and consideration.

  13. When colon kaepernick started with his antics..i tuned sports out. I spend alot of time with my daughter and son..and I work alot with their teachers. They are worth the time and effort. These athletes are a joke and they will hold you back from being a great person

  14. Maybe we should start treating teachers like pro athletes..seeing the hard work, dedication and time they put into their work despite the sometimes hidden/open abuse/violence and ridicule they're exposed to on an hourly bases, I'd say, they deserve it.

  15. If education was anywhere near this important, we might have a democracy worth of the name. Apparently all it would take is the creation of an alternate universe.

  16. This is what I've been saying!!! Athletes make more money than the ones who actually taught them how to write and read… That's 10 times harder!

  17. This is Brilliant. Teachers are FAR more valuable than nfl players.
    But they've gotta start Pushing Back against the SJW indoctrinations if they want More respect today. Look at Jordan Peterson and HIS NFL-level income now!
    for real though–HOMESCHOOL YOUR KIDS. Public schools have Betrayed out TRUST. And are RUINING our Children.

  18. It is comedy, but it's a sad truth of how petty out society has become that we don't respect education and throw money at physical activities.

  19. Because America cares more about sports, not at all about the affects of brain injuries, our children’s education, and totally underpaid/overworked teachers. It’s ridiculous. Way to shed light on this monumental issue so brilliantly. Thank you.
