Stephen Round was frustrated by his inability to teach students the way he thought they should be taught. He wanted to move away from the rigid structures and standardized testing methods which he believes is not conducive to children learning anything. He was however not allowed to use creative or alternate methods of teaching which were not welcome by the school management and he decided it was time he quit. The school system in which he had much pride he says has drastically changed for the worse and thus his decision to resign. Listening to Stephen Round makes you really wonder about the future of our children’s education.
