When I first saw this skit I couldn’t stop laughing. They were tears of sadness as much as they were of joy. The comic brilliance of Key and Peele shed light on one of our country’s most ubiquitous problems: the professionalism of teachers. Other countries to whom the US compares itself pays teachers better, not to mention teachers are regarded more respectfully socially. I am not sure what we have to do to get to that point. Nor do I think this video has the answers. But it does an excellent job in jokingly shaming us to asking better questions.
