The video is a bit long and feels repetitive in places, but it's also a searing indictment of the school system in Illinois spoken by teacher Ellie Rubenstein. In the video, "Rubenstein explains why she is quitting and addresses several major problems she says she has faced as a teacher in the U.S. public education system. 'I was proud to say I was a teacher,' Rubenstein tells the camera, after describing how she abandoned a career in public relations to 'do something meaningful' with her life. 'But over the past 15 years, I've experienced the depressing, gradual downfall and misdirection of communication that has slowly eaten away at my love of teaching.'"
