The #1 .... satirist about school

Number One** Not your ordinary, endless list - just what's number 1.


Mr. Sharp



Today I was searching for an old PSA (public service announcements) and was reminded of the brilliant wit of Mr. Sharp. He has dozens of PSAs, satirizing them in only a way he or any Brit could....

Take a moment, take a summer pause and watch his hilarious take on "learning" and education. Gut splitting! Did we become teachers just to complete the student/teacher circle?

Ellen, 

 

Take it with a grain of salt.... I know it can be sad - but it is the only way we'll ever improve things, if we can see it in this light and even, maybe laugh at our own absurdity.... I think he did a great job. A few other things I'd of pointed out but then again, I'm nowhere near the master of subtle satire a Brit is.
