Paging Jeff Probst
Posted by lpearle on 14 September 2010
A friend of mine recently shared an idea for a reality tv show, one I’d not only watch but volunteer to be on! We could call it “Survivor: Classroom”.
Here’s the idea: let’s take a couple of investment bankers, a few politicians, some laborers and perhaps a lawyer or two and send them to teacher bootcamp, giving them a subject specialist mentor and getting them ready to teach. Then put them in classrooms around the country (say, Harlem, Chicago’s South Side, some place in Appalachia, a school with a really mixed population and no dominant language, etc.) to teach for a couple of months. Let’s see how they feel about our supposed “easy job” and light schedule.
Anyone else interested in swapping?
